Diamond Conflict Trading will be resolved very soon

2001: Diamond Conflict Trading and Canadian Firm’s Resolution

Feb. 2001

Canada’s CVF Technologies Corp. claims to have developed a system to "fingerprint" diamonds from mine to consumer in an attempt to thwart sales of conflict stones. The system uses a laser to identify unique light patterns from a cut stone and downloads the information onto an international database. The fingerprinting is already being used on diamonds from the Ekati mine in Canada‘s Northwest Territories. While many laser-inscription services have been developed, CVF Technology emphasizes that their technology is not an erasable imprint but, rather, an invisible process of identifying a cut stone by its light patterns--patterns that can not be erased without extensive recutting of the stone.
