Paperback 9780873110501
More than 30 years of synthetic diamond research published in Gems & Gemology has been compiled in this comprehensive volume. Organized into five sections, each with introductions written by GIA Distinguished Research Fellow Dr. James E. Shigley, this book gives a historical overview of lab-grown diamonds—from the time they were first introduced by the General Electric Co. for industrial use in the mid-1950s, to the company’s 1970 announcement of a gem-quality synthetic diamond, to the debut of synthetics in the market in the 2000s. The most recent articles provide the latest information on high pressure/high temperature (HPHT) and chemical vapor deposition (CVD) synthetic diamonds, their production and identifying characteristics.
