GSI Cautions Over Color Instability in CVD Diamonds

December 05, 19


(IDEX Online) - Laboratory grown diamonds grown using the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process could be prone to extreme color instability warns Gemological Science International (GSI).

During standard testing by GSI, a 2-carat CVD diamond was exposed to high-powered UV rays and went from near colorless to blue color. It was then returned to the vault. When it was taken out a week-and-a-half later, it had retained the blue color. 

While CVD diamonds can undergo color changes under UV light or extreme light, they typically return to their normal color after 30-60 minutes of direct sunlight.

This stone, however, took two-and-a-half hours to regain its normal color.

Based on this finding, GSI recommends that while most diamonds will not change to this extent, all lab-grown CVD diamonds should be placed in a full-spectrum light box for at least 30 minutes before color grading.    

According to GSI Chief Information Officer Nicolas Del Re, color changes may happen through casual use as well.

"When wearing out in the open, CVD diamonds may change in coloration upon even subtle exposures to electromagnetic radiation such as UV rays on a sunny beach or under a blacklight in a nightclub for example." 

The changes occur because of photochronism. This is when electrons in defects within a CVD diamond cause the energy state to change and affect the way color is absorbed on the visible spectrum, explained Del Re.

据GSI首席信息官Nicolas Del Re称,随便使用也可能发生颜色变化。


发生变化是由于光时变。这是当CVD金刚石中的缺陷中的电子导致能态改变Del Re解释说,这会影响颜色在可见光谱上的吸收方式。
