Sarin Technologies, a Singapore-listed company that specializes in the evaluation and measurement of diamonds, announced that it has shipped its Galaxy 1000, a system designed to scan and map internal inclusion in rough diamonds, to a new service center in Botswana.
The center, which is located in the rough diamond trading hub of Gaborone, is the eighth such facility that Sarin has opened. It operates service center in India, Belgium, Russia, South Africa, and Namibia.
Gaborone is gaining a reputation as a growing destination for rough diamond traders, particularly after De Beers announced that it would relocate there from London.
“With this new service being offered in Botswana, our customers there too will gain an unprecedented view into the internal features of the diamond, thus truly optimizing the value realized by the stone’s owner,” Sarin CEO Uzi Levami said.
