Synthetic Moissanite - cheaper tester


#1
It appears  that C3 is more interested in selling there tester that
product.  Most gemologist have a polariscope that will determine if
the mineral is doubly refractive.  Cheaper testers are sure to
follow.

The double refraction is very obvious. I’d say a good eyeball can
do it :> Carol

I understand that the doubling is not so obvious through the table
due to the orientation of the crystal in cutting but is obvious
through bezel or crown main facets.
