Under no circumstances shall QUICKTEST be liable for direct or indirect loss sustained in connection with any item. Nothing is 100% accurate, you must understand the limitations of any tester you buy. We also suggest you regularly test known samples to check for any obvious faults. Full support given for items you buy from QUICKTEST. Alternative gem testers Please note, none of these testers will distinguish natural stones from synthetic stones. "Synthetic" is a scientific term meaning 'made by man in a factory/laboratory to the same formula found in nature', the two are usually indistinguishable.  Model Tests mounted stones [1] Tests  Diamond Tests  Moissanite Tests Ruby /  Sapphire Other stones Standard Presidium (GEMTEST-P2) ✔ ✔ Shows up as diamond ✔ 17 stones Presidium Duo gem tester (GEMTEST-DUO-II) [2] ✔ ✔ ✔ [3] Digital refractometer by Presidium (REFRACT-DIGI-PRESID) ✘ ✔ ✔ ✔ 55 stones Refractometer (optical not electronic) (Refract-L) ✘ ✘ ✘ ✔ Hundreds of stones [4] [1] All testers test loose stones but not all can test mounted (set in jewellery) stones.
