Paper Abstract

The development of a system for pricing diamonds, whose price differs greatly for gems of equal weight, must be matched by the development of the techniques of quality control. Until the present time, most of the control relied on human perception. The interaction of laser light, in controlled conditions, with the gem gives enough data to quantify all the commercialized gems.
