FOR REAL

The International Institute of Diamond Grading and Research has developed a tool to detect synthetic diamonds. Called PhosView, it analyzes polished stones for the possible presence of High Pressure High Temperature Synthetics. The device’s mechanical arms allow for any suspicious stones to be easily removed from a parcel under inspection for individual study. iidgr.com

ROMANOV REVEAL

Fewer than 20 copies exist of Russia’s Treasure of Diamonds and Precious Stones, a circa 1925-26 record of Russia’s crown jewels, but thanks to the digitization efforts of GIA’s Richard T. Liddicoat Gemological Library and Information Center, you can now read this remarkable document from any web browser. The catalog details 406 of the Romonav dynasty’s legendary bejeweled treasures, including descriptions, black-andwhite photographs, and even an accounting of prices in some sections. It’s in English, not Russian, so don’t be shy instr.us/11162
