DIAMOND TIMES – The 30 millionth stone scanned was a 35.5-carat rough diamond scanned in Dubai by the Choron Group. To date, the largest diamond scanned worldwide on a Galaxy® system was a 286-carat rough stone, the smallest being a mere 0.013 carat in weight (1.3 points).The company said, Kiran Gems leads all other manufacturers with the most rough diamonds scanned at their facilities, having processed over 20 million diamonds since they first adopted the Galaxy® technology.
David Block, Chief Executive Officer of Sarine, stated, The Galaxy® technology has become the global standard for scanning of rough diamonds across all sizes, qualities and market segments, undoubtedly propelling the industry, along with our world-leading Advisor® planning solution, to a higher level of value. We are confident that our new technologies – the high-speed rough scanner designed for use at the mine’s source to enhance traceability and improve internal inventory control. Our unique traceability solution – the Sarine Diamond JourneyTM and our AI-based e-GradingTM technology currently in beta-testing, will ultimately also propel the diamond industry to new levels of efficiency and consumer confidence.
Sarine Technologies said its Galaxy® family of scanning and inclusion mapping systems surpassed the milestone of having scanned 30 million stones worldwide in one year. This year’s milestone is an indication of the accelerating adoption of the paradigm, given that in 2019 and 2020 only 18 and 19 million stones were scanned, respectively, Sarine noted.
