Advanced Synthetic Diamond Seminar to be Presented in Carlsbad

GIA will offer its new Advanced Synthetic Diamond Seminar in October at its world headquarters in Carlsbad, California. Participants will have the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge of advanced diamond identification techniques and to have hands-on experience with current production synthetic diamonds and the latest detection technology. While there are no pre-requisites, previous gemological training or experience is recommended.

Taught by GIA research scientists and experienced classroom instructors, the seminars will combine lectures with practical lab instruction, including the latest GIA instrumentation for differentiating natural diamonds from CVD and HPHT synthetic diamonds and diamond simulants. Instruments include the GIA iD100™, GIA DiamondCheck™ and GIA UV Lamp with Viewing Cabinet. The GIA research scientist presenting the seminar will have expert knowledge of synthetic diamond as a material, its identification and gemological characteristics, along with the processes used by GIA’s laboratories to separate synthetic from natural diamonds. To provide the most effective instruction, registrations are limited to 20 or fewer, depending on location.

The seminar is scheduled around the GIA International Gemological Symposium in Carlsbad, California. Discounted pricing is available for GIA Alumni who have completed a certificate course or diploma program.

Those interested in the seminars should contact GIA Carlsbad. Details of future seminars will be posted on Dates, course content and participating researcher are subject to change.

October 10 – 11 (2-day extended seminar)
GIA Researcher: Dr. Sally Magaña, senior research scientist at GIA in Carlsbad; expert in diamond physics, treatments and synthetics.
