Unlike a traditional refractometer, PRIM II is able to measure the range of RI value from 1.000 to ~3.000, therefore covering the commonly known gemstones in the market, including diamonds and moissanites. In addition, a fast and easy test can be done, without the inconvenience and messy usage of RI liquid.
