FURTHER INFORMATION

Have you seen the Fascinating article about gem testers? This will answer many questions about electronic gem testers (all electronic gem testers!) - how 'reliable' are they? How 'easy to use' are they?

In summary: no gem tester will light up with a number (or name) that tells you, with 100% certainty, the name of the gemstone. This is because nature does not make gemstones to a standard formulae, there are always variations. To see how the readings of gemstones overlap, see chart.

All of gemmology is a detective game, starting with an idea of what the gemstone might be (that is what electronic gem testers are for) then using knowledge and skill to find the answer.

If you are new to gemmology, please DO buy this gem tester! - but also buy a good book about gemstones, the best is Gem Identification Made Easy. Not only is this a good guide to gemstones, it also has details of every gem tester, including hints, tips and advanced instructions.
