How does it work?
The tagging process often takes place at the mine. The rough crystals are tagged with the nanoparticles before any cleaning or sorting is undertaken. The tagging of the Physical Tracers is carried out by an independent auditor.
At the mine, we begin our unique tagging process by applying specialized nanoparticles to rough crystals before any cleaning or sorting takes place. To ensure complete impartiality, the Physical Tracers are always applied by an independent auditor.
Our nanoparticles penetrate the fissures of the emerald and adhere precisely to its surface, leaving a crystal-clear and permanent mark. And with our ethanol-based liquid evaporating in just minutes, the tagging process is already complete, providing complete transparency and traceability.
Our provenance testing has shown that our DNA tags remain intact during cutting, polishing, and even re-oiling processes, allowing us to determine their origin at a later date.
When you purchase a piece of our jewellery in a retail shop, the Provenance Proof label and Emerald Paternity Test inspire trust and bring confidence to our consumers. And, if needed, we can submit the stone to an authorized lab for a paternity test, giving our clients complete transparency about where their emerald was unearthed.
