Respected Fellow Orchidians,
I am an Indian national (from India), and a Permanent Resident of
Please advise me on the best sources for procuring a gold tester.
I am curious whether there is any machine/hand device/instrument
which could identify color stones or detect whether the stone is a
emerald or a substitute or in case of a ruby, if ruby or not or
likewise for Sapphires or other stones, some substitute or /and any
other instruments which would identify characteristics of color
stones - both, precious as well as semi3Dprecious?
Whether there are instruments for checking pearls? Whether they are
natural or synthetic or treated pearls or such devices, which could
simplify appraisal of pearls and color stones.
For diamonds, what best devices would Orchidians suggest?
I could have the payment remitted by Telegraphic Transfer from Hong
Kong /bank wire transfer to the supplier.
Need best competitive quotes covering net price of the instruments,
necessary accessories therewith, and separate quote for insurance,
delivery to my doorstep in Bombay/India.
Just a few highlights on why I need these:
Indian government invites applications from jewelers wanting to
nominate and register themselves as Government of India approved
These appraisers are called upon call to evaluate jewelry, gold, and
precious stones seized during raids and searches carried out on
commercial & residential premises of business tycoons, individuals or
corporate suspected of tax evasion or other crimes/violations upon
some being recd. by the respective departments.
Therefore, my application being under scrutiny and positively, under
consideration by the federal govt. in India, it becomes imperative
that I adequately equip myself with necessary to9ols and kit to
facilitate smooth appraisal of the gems and jewelry.
Thanking Orchidians in advance for input and advise on above,
God bless you all in your endeavors,
