Tech Company Develops New Diamond Laser-Inscription
PhotoScribe Technologies, a US based tech company, has launched a new product that promises laser inscriptions below the diamond’s surface that “cannot be removed without dramatically altering the stone,” IDEX Online reports.
According to PhotoScribe Technologies, the subsurface technology used was developed some years ago but was “a solution looking for a problem”. The new PermaScribe product “can apply an inscription within any area of the faceted diamond – either visible or invisible under 10x loupe”, according to the report.
In a press release, the company said: “The recent emergence of synthetic diamonds and a growing concern about counterfeiting have spurred an increase in demand for a solution (to tracking diamonds). For the lab-grown diamond industry, there’s a need for visible subsurface permanent identification that can be seen through a 10x loupe.”
