Fluorescence in diamonds is the glow you might see when the diamond is under ultra-violet (UV) light (i.e. sunlight or black light). Approximately 30% of diamonds glow at least somewhat… 99% of the time, the glow is blue, but on rare occasions, diamonds glow white, yellow, green, or even red in color.

Interestingly, diamonds can also glow under black light in a variety of other colors ranging from yellow, white, red, green and orange. Gemological labs like GIA or AGS will assess a diamond’s fluorescence intensity during the grading process and identify its intensity according to the following categories: None, Faint, Medium, Strong and Very Strong.

Similarly, when a diamond is placed under black light, it glows. However, not all diamonds have fluorescence, some are fluorescent free called “None” in the GIA diamond report . Only 30% to 35% of diamonds have fluorescence.

Three out of four diamonds don't glow under black light. Of those that do, 97% glow blue. Most of the others glow purple. Some glow red, or yellow, or any of a bunch of other colors. It just depends on the diamond. The intensity of the glow is usually rated as 1) none, 2) weak, 3) medium, 4) strong, or 5) very strong.

Hold the diamond in question under a long wave UV light (also called a black light). If the diamond reflects a blue fluorescence, it is most likely authentic. Be aware that while the majority of diamonds on the market will have a blue glow under UV light, high quality diamonds will not.

Apparently twenty percent of diamonds are supposed to fluoresce. We have quite a range of diamond jewelry – all with provenance so known to be genuine. None glow, though with all other light sources off, they do exhibit a faint bluish colour – nothing as bright as a normal “Black Light” glow from something white under IR.

When certain materials are exposed to black light, their molecules change energy levels very rapidly and the material appears to glow or fluoresce. Knowing how an authentic gem reacts to black light can then be used when exposing other gems to black light. CAUTION: Shortwave black light can be dangerous.

Lay the stone onto the dot with the flat side down. Through the pointed end of the diamond, look down onto the paper. If you see a circular reflection inside the gemstone, the stone is fake. If you cannot see the dot or a reflection in the stone, then the diamond is real.
