The Presidium Duo Tester is built to test thermal conductivity of popular gemstones, loose or mounted.
The Presidium Duo Tester has an easy-to-read dial that indicates the thermal conductivity of the most popular gemstones and simulants, loose or mounted. All stones tested as "diamond" with the thermal tester should be further tested with a diamond/moissanite tester to check for moissanite. Stones are further distinguished based on their reflectivity readings, using the chart supplied with the unit. Operates on included 100-240v AC adapter
or runs on 5 AAA batteries (not included)
