Galaxy® XL


The Galaxy XL is the Galaxy Inclusion Mapping system model that enables the fully automated detection and mapping of the internal features of your large rough diamonds (of up to ~200 carats). The Galaxy XL maps all the inclusions in the diamond regardless of their type, size, and location. This unique process is performed quickly and automatically without the need for any “windows” being opened or other pre-processing of the rough stone.


Galaxy systems scan and map inclusions in rough diamonds, offering automated accurate internal assessment that detects the most minute clarity data for a wide range of diamond sizes. Since its initial release in 2009, the Galaxy inclusion mapping system has taken the industry to new levels in terms of maximizing the potential of rough diamonds. The system takes a rough diamond, and reveals to the manufacturer a perfectly accurate picture of all its possible futures as a polished diamond. The idea that diamond manufacturers could now predict and design the optimal cutting plan, with complete precision, was a major breakthrough that influences the entire production pipeline. Galaxy not only changed the way that diamonds are mapped – it also changed the way the industry relates to the concept of rough planning.
