New service: 3D Fingerprinting of precious stones

In this new service, we offer a full microCT scan of precious stones, at a resolution determined by the size of the stone. The full 3D data can be used to 100% accurately determine a precious stone’s identity, for example to identify a stone after recovery from theft. The service includes a report and full data set, at a cost of R3000. The stones must be provided without setting (removed from rings etc.) and discounts are available for larger batches.

    Hi Anton
    Jodie steered me to this site. I would like to visit your facility ( Chamber of Mines Building?) to see what it can do re gem identification. Next week sometime?
