Summary

Bench model. A dual tester with both thermal meter and reflectivity meter.

Place the probe on the stone to operate analogue meter (the thermal meter, see detail in the extra pictures).

Place the stone over the sensor (even if it's in jewellery) to operate the digital meter (the reflectivity meter). 

You don't have to use both systems, you can choose one or the other.

Guarantee: 1 year

Details

The thermal meter works with any stone, loose or mounted in jewellery, even uncut stones. The only condition is that the stone (and tester) must be at room temperature. It is the same as the basic Presidium model (thermal meter only),  it tests for 17 common groups of gemstones (about 40 varieties),  enlarge the product picture to see the scale in detail.  The reflectivity meter works on loose (not mounted) stones with a perfectly flat, perfectly polished surface, than can be rested over the sensor, it is not affected by temperature.

Alternative gem testers

Please note, none of these testers will distinguish natural stones from synthetic stones. "Synthetic" is a scientific term meaning 'made by man in a factory/laboratory to the same formula found in nature', the two are usually indistinguishable.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Is there a way I can collect this rather than have it posted?

    Yes you can collect any item, see directions.

  • Will the probe need replacing?

    The probe is purely electrical, it does not ‘wear out’ so you will never need to replace it (unless you damage it).

  • What is the difference between this and the PGT model? Thanks

    This one has a meter (see the picture);  the PGT has a digital display that lights up with the names of the stones.

    This one is larger, the PGT is smaller.

    All the differences (of all the models) are explained in Gem testers | Quicktest

  • Can we identify synthetic gems with this? Thank you

    No. Synthetics read the same on all electronic gem testers (the only exception is one specialist diamond tester).

    Please do not confuse “synthetic” with “simulant / imitation”.  

    "Synthetics" are grown in a laboratory to same formula found in nature, the result is the same, identical physically, identical optically.

    "Simulant / imitation" is where one stone looks like another (to the non-expert, anyway!), e.g. Moissanite, cubic zirconia, spinel, white sapphire, glass etc - they may all  'look like' diamond but they are not.
