|Magnetic diagnostics of diamond origin|
Synthetic diamond crystals and stones cut from them can be attracted by a strong magnet. This is because these crystals contain metal flux inclusions. So, this feature can be used in diagnostics of diamond origin. This is an indirect diagnostic feature, which can be used to confirm the results of diagnostics based on different methods.
Magnetic properties of natural and synthetic diamonds
Recommended procedure for studying the magnetic properties of a diamond:
- Take a white paper sheet and a magnet.
