Based on the Galaxy® inclusion mapping technology, the Galaxy® Meteor is specially designed for the small stone segment of rough diamonds sized 0.25 to 0.89 carat. The Meteor inclusion mapping system delivers an accurate 3D model of the rough stone, including internal inclusions for smaller stones, down to VS type, and external surface flaws. For manufacturers of smaller polished diamonds, Meteor provides a comprehensive approach to stone management, delivering a fast, cost-efficient solution that enables maximal utilization 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.
