SAPPHIRE TESTER
NEW ADVANCED
EXCLUSIVE TECHNOLOGY
RECOMMENDED
by
CHARLES
& COLVARD
CREATED MOISSANITE
The GemOro TESTEROSSA is
the ultimate tester for diamond
fraud protection that’s exclusively
RECOMMENDED BY CHARLES &
COLVARD, the manufacturer of created
moissanite! The TESTEROSSA features
NEW ADVANCED EXCLUSIVE
TECHNOLOGY capable of identifying
the widest range of the electrically
conductive moissanite material available,
including the new super-low electrically
conductive moissanite.
OPERATING PROCEDURE
& OWNERS MANUAL
Congratulations on your purchase of
the TESTEROSSA by GemOro Superior
Instruments, the most trusted name
in gemological instrumentation for the
jewelry industry. You’ve made a smart
choice, because the TESTEROSSA has
been determined to be the world’s best,
most accurate, and durable option in
diamond testing devices to assist you to
separate true diamonds from moissanite,
white sapphire, CZ, and other known
diamond simulants.
IMPORTANT: PLEASE BE CERTAIN
TO READ THE FOLLOWING
COMPLETELY BEFORE USING.
THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY &
ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY
TESTING METHODS:
The recognized method for separating
diamond from all known diamond
simulants (except moissanite and
synthetic diamond) is the thermal
conductivity test. The thermal
conductivity test works consistently well
since a diamond’s heat conductivity
property is significantly greater than all
other gemstones (except moissanite
and synthetic diamond). White sapphire
is also thermally conductive, yet not as
conductive as diamond and moissanite,
GEMORO TESTEROSSA

therefore, it can be separated from those
two types of stones.
The recognized, most practical way for
separating the vast majority of moissanite
gemstones from diamond is the electrical
conductivity test; since most moissanite
conducts electricity while diamonds, as
well as other known diamond simulants,
do not. It should be noted that while
the vast majority of moissanite may
be electrically conductive, in some
moissanite gemstones there might only
be electrical conductivity in varying
degrees and in some instances the
electrical conductivity may be dependent
upon the location on the stone’s surface
being tested. But have no fear. With
the new PATENT PENDING technology
built into the TESTEROSSA, you can
identify the widest range of electrically
conductive moissanite material available,
including the new super-low electrically
conductive moissanite. It works so
amazingly well, the TESTEROSSA
has been recommended by Charles &
Colvard, the manufacturer of created
moissanite, as their tester of choice. It
doesn’t get any better than that!
Other than some rare and natural colored
diamonds, as well as some lab grown
synthetic diamonds, natural white
diamonds do not conduct electricity.
If a stone does not conduct heat or
electricity, it will be determined to be
more than likely a common CZ or other
diamond simulant. Because hand-oil is
electrically conductive and the stone
being tested may not be clean, any
test result that indicates moissanite,
especially on smaller size stones
that haven’t been cleaned, should be
suspect, cleaned, and retested. Due
to the electrical conductivity properties of
some of the chemicals commonly used
in the production of lab-grown synthetic
3
diamonds, when the TESTEROSSA’s
probe tip touches these stones the metal
alert feature or moissanite indication may
be set off.
The GemOro Superior Instruments
TESTEROSSA utilizes both the thermal
conductivity and electrical conductivity
testing methods in one seemingly
simultaneous test, and it will quickly help
in identifying and separating the stone
in question. The TESTEROSSA is an
advanced, technologically based tool
and it should be used as a helpful device
only. The TESTEROSSA is not meant to
replace the trained gemologist.
NATURAL COLORED DIAMONDS &
TREATED COLORED DIAMONDS:
Because some fancy natural colored
diamonds and some fancy treated
colored diamonds are electrically
conductive, the GemOro TESTEROSSA
should ideally be used on colorless
stones only. This limitation applies to all
testers that utilize thermal and electrical
conductivity methods for testing the
authenticity of the stone.
IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: The
TESTEROSSA is a helpful screening tool
that by design is to be used as a quick
method for helping to identify diamond,
moissanite, and white sapphire. The
TESTEROSSA should not be used as
the final method for determining the
authenticity or identity of the gemstone
being tested. The final determination of
the identity of any gemstone, whether
genuine or not, should only be made by a
trained gemologist. Neither GemOro nor
any of its affiliates, dealers, or distributors
shall be held liable for any loss and/or
damages associated with the use of the
TESTEROSSA. No warranties exist with
respect to the TESTEROSSA or its use
GEMORO TESTEROSSA

other than those expressly contained
herein. All other warranties of any kind or
character whatsoever, whether expressed
or implied, including warranties of
merchantability or fitness for a particular
purpose, are hereby disclaimed and are
excluded from the warranties hereunder.
In the event that a claim is made with
respect to the TESTEROSSA or its use,
the maximum liability of GemOro, and
its affiliates, dealers, and distributors
shall be the amount paid for the
TESTEROSSA.
PLEASE READ BEFORE USING THE
PROVIDED NiMH RECHARGEABLE
BATTERIES: Before using the NiMH
rechargeable batteries that have been
provided with your tester, the batteries
should be fully charged as indicated by
the small round LED indicator next to the
power button glowing green when the
TESTEROSSA is plugged in. While the
batteries are being charged, the tester
may be used as desired while powered
by the AC current.
CONDITIONS FOR IDEAL
OPERATION:
1. The TESTEROSSA should be used in
the following environmental conditions.
Both the tester and the stone being
tested must be the same temperature.
By not following these instructions you
risk compromising the accuracy of the
test.
a. Temperature: 65°F-80°F (18°C-27°C)
b. Air Relative Humidity: 45%-75%
2. The stone being tested must be dry. If
the surface of the stone is wet or has
any type of surface moisture it may not
test correctly.
5
3. The stone being tested must be
clean. Aside from obvious visible dirt
that may be present on the stone,
there may also be hand oil or other
contaminates on the stones surface
that may not be visible and which
could impact the accuracy of the test.
Always be certain to clean the stone
being tested with an ultrasonic or
steamer or other appropriate means,
and thoroughly dry it and/or remove
any cleaning chemicals remaining on
the stone prior to testing.
4. It is imperative that the probe tip be
cleaned regularly or ideally prior to
performing a test. Please be aware
that there may be hand oil or other
contaminates that may not be visible
on the probe tip, which could impact
the accuracy of the test. To clean the
tip, take a piece of uncoated white
printer or copy paper and lay it on a
table or counter or other flat surface.
Place the tester in a 90-degree angle
against the paper with the probe
tip lightly touching it. Apply enough
pressure to gently depress the spring
loaded probe tip slightly inside the
housing while carefully rubbing the
probe tip on the paper in a forward
motion a few times to clean it.
Repeat this process routinely or prior
to testing each time to ensure the
cleanliness of the probe tip.
5. Always allow the stone being tested
to cool off for 5-10 seconds prior to
retesting. Blowing on the stone is
recommended and will speed up this
process. Please be aware that if while
testing a stone the TESTEROSSA’s
light pipe turns pink, unless it is a
white sapphire or sapphire watch
crystal, odds are that the stone has
been overheated from prolonged
exposure to the probe tip and,
GEMORO TESTEROSSA
6
therefore, you must wait for the stone
to cool off prior to retesting.
TESTEROSSA FEATURES:
1. Helps to identify diamond,
moissanite, and white sapphire,
including genuine sapphire watch
crystals. The test results are shown
via its PATENTED color-coded
light pipe and simultaneously it
is also spoken verbally in one of
nine different user-programmable
languages (English, Spanish, German,
Italian, French, Japanese, Mandarin
Chinese, Russian, and Arabic).
Instead of talking, alternatively the
tester may be programmed to provide
unique ring tones when identifying
the various materials or providing
other alerts, both of which are
PATENT PENDING.
2. Quickly assists with testing most
any size diamond and moissanite,
including low conductivity moissanite,
whether mounted or loose.
3. The sleek and ergonomic shape
comfortably rests in and on your
hand when held, and the tester has
PATENT PENDING intuitive finger grip
pads for increased user-friendliness
and ease of use.
4. The LED illuminator and UV
fluorescence detector are positioned
under the probe tip. The LED
Illuminator is a super bright LED that
illuminates the stone being tested
and, since it is a UV LED, it also helps
to identify fluorescence in diamonds.
5. The tester is equipped with a
spring-loaded probe tip designed
to protect the probe tip if excessive
force is used while testing or if it is
accidentally dropped.
7
6. The tester housing is made from
virtually indestructible polycarbonate,
and has a molded rubber base for
increased impact resistance.
7. Powered by (3) supplied 1.5V AAA
NiMH rechargeable batteries.
The rechargeable batteries may
be substituted with AAA alkaline
batteries if a suitable power outlet
is unavailable to recharge the NiMH
batteries.
8. The tester is also designed to
have its batteries charged with
the TESTEROSSA’s PATENTED
GemOro UltraDock 3 charging station
accessory, which is included with the
tester.
9. Includes a premium GemOro carbonfiber style protective carrying/storage
case, aluminum loose stone holder,
as well as (3) user-replaceable AAA
NiMH rechargeable batteries, a
universal multi-voltage 100V-240V
AC adaptor/charger cube with microUSB cord. It also comes with a handy
PATENT PENDING GemOro Test
Stone Magnifier attachment, which
when clipped onto the tester’s tip
cone area allows the user to more
easily see and test small diamonds
without accidentally touching the
setting or prongs.
10. The tester has an auto-off function
to preserve the battery life and it will
automatically turn itself off after a
period of 5 minutes of non-use. After
powering down, if you wish to resume
using the TESTEROSSA, simply
touch the tester’s power button and
within seconds the tester will turn
itself back on again.

2. The TESTEROSSA’s batteries may be
charged by placing the tester in its
included UltraDock 3 battery charging
station with the micro-USB power cord
plugged into the rear of the charging
station or by plugging its micro-USB
power cord into the rear the tester
and the USB adapter cube directly
into a wall outlet. Once the tester is
connected to the AC adapter or the
charging station, the tester will switch
to its DC power mode. The tester’s
built-in Intelligent Charging Circuit ICC
will automatically identify the type of
batteries installed (NiMH rechargeable
batteries or alkaline batteries). If
alkaline batteries are installed, the
circuit will automatically cut off the
power supply to the batteries so
that the alkaline batteries will not
be recharged. If NiMH rechargeable
batteries are installed, the batteries
will be recharged and at the same time
the tester may be used with the AC
adapter.

3. To turn the TESTEROSSA ON, press
the oval shaped power button located
on the top center edge of the tester
(see image) and hold it down for
approximately one second, then
release the button. The power button’s
blue LED indicator will begin flashing.
The warm-up time is approximately 25
seconds. When it has fully warmed up,
the flashing blue LED light will become
solid. At this time the tester will say,
“READY” or if in the ring tone setting,
a bell will chime twice. You may now
begin using the tester.
POWER BUTTON
4. When using the TESTEROSSA for
the first time, the factory setting is
designed to indicate by default to
the English-speaking mode. While in
this mode it has the ability to identify
and say “READY,” “DIAMOND,”
“MOISSANITE,” “METAL ALERT,”
and “POWER DOWN”. To change
the indication, while the tester is
powered on and the blue power switch
is illuminated, press and hold the
power button down until the indicator
begins scrolling through the various
options. The options include: English,
Ring Tone, Spanish, German, Italian,
French, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese,
Russian, and Arabic. Once the desired
indication has been found, remove
your finger from the button. The
TESTEROSSA’s indicator will remain
13
in that mode the next time the unit
is powered up or until it is physically
changed.
5. The TESTEROSSA is also equipped
with a PATENTED color-coded light
pipe and probe tip cone indicator. This
line of sight colored indicator allows
the user to easily see the test results
while keeping their eyes on the stone
being tested.
GREEN = Diamond
BLUE = Moissanite
PINK = Sapphire
RED = Metal Alert
6. Prior to using the TESTEROSSA,
be certain to REMOVE THE WHITE
PROBE TIP CAP at the front end
of the tester that serves to protect
the probe tip from accidentally
being bent or broken. The cap may
be easily removed by simply applying
a minimal amount of pressure to the
top and bottom sides of the cap, as
you hold it between your thumb and
forefinger. Then gently pull it down, out
and off. Always replace the cap when
the TESTEROSSA is not in use.

7. To properly hold the TESTEROSSA,
it is important to grasp the tester
similarly to how you’d hold a pen,
but with your thumb and forefinger
touching the PATENT PENDING
finger pads located on either side of
the tester (see image). This will allow
you to easily manipulate the tester
and make the best contact with the
stone being tested. While holding the
tester, its ergonomic shape allows it
to comfortably rest in and on the top
of your hand. If you hold the tester
without touching the finger pads, the
metal alert feature will not function.
HOW TO PROPERLY HOLD THE TESTER
8. The LED Illuminator allows the user
to easily see the stone being tested
to confirm that only the stone is being
tested and that the setting or prongs
are not accidentally being touched.
This LED is a special UV type that
may also be used to identify the
fluorescence characteristic found in
approximately 30% of all diamonds.

9. Testing Mounted Stones: With one
hand, hold the ring or setting
that contains the stone you wish
to test and in your other hand
hold the TESTEROSSA. Position
the stone’s table (see image) in front
of the testers probe tip. Quickly, yet
firmly touch the testers probe tip to
the stone’s table, while being certain
not to allow the probe tip to make
contact with the metal setting or
prongs. While firmly depressing the
spring-loaded probe tip all of the way
in until you hear a click sound, touch
the stone just long enough to allow
the tester to indicate a reading (1 or 2
seconds) and then take the probe tip
away from the stone. Be aware that
a stone that has been overheated
by prolonged exposure to the
probe, or from body heat due to
wearing or the environment, may
not test accurately. Always allow
the stone and setting a few seconds
to cool off to room temperature
before testing. Blowing on the stone
will speed up this process.
TESTING A MOUNTED STONE
10. Testing Loose Stones: Place the
loose stone in the supplied aluminum
loose stone testing plate positioned
with the stones culet (see image)
pointing down into the recessed
hole part of the testing plate. Then
hold the testing plate steady
with one hand (see image), as
GEMORO TESTEROSSA
16
this will also allow the electrical
current to pass through your
body, permitting the tester
to function as designed and
test properly. While holding the
TESTEROSSA in your other hand,
firmly touch the probe tip to the loose
stone’s table (see image) until the
test result it indicated. YOU MUST
FOLLOW THIS PROCEDURE
WHEN TESTING LOOSE STONES
OR THE TESTER MAY NOT TEST
CORRECTLY. DO NOT ATTEMPT
TO TEST LOOSE STONES
WHILE HOLDING THEM IN YOUR
FINGERS OR THE TESTER MAY
NOT TEST CORRECTLY.
TESTING LOOSE STONES WITH
TESTING PLATE
11. The probe tip must be cleaned
routinely to ensure proper contact
with the stone being tested. To clean
the tip, take a piece of uncoated
white printer or copy paper and
lay it on a table or counter or other
flat surface. Place the tester in a
90-degree angle against the paper
with the probe tip lightly touching
it. Apply enough pressure to gently
depress the spring loaded probe
tip slightly inside the housing while
carefully rubbing the probe tip on
the paper in a forward motion a few
times to clean it. Repeat this process
routinely or prior to testing each time
to ensure the cleanliness of the probe
tip.
17
12. Using the UltraDock 3: Place the
charging station in a convenient
location near where it will be used,
such as on a desk, showcase or
repair area counter. Take the testers
micro-USB power cord and plug it
into the rear of the UltraDock 3, while
plugging the USB into its AC power
cube adapter. Plug the adapter into
a convenient wall outlet. When the
charging station is plugged in and
has power, the diamond shaped
indicator on the front end of the dock
will remain glowing green. You may
now simply place the TESTEROSSA
in the charging stations cradle with
its bottom edge facing down, and
the rear of the TESTEROSSA facing
the back end of the cradle. When
placed in the cradle, always confirm
the tester is properly seated in the
UltraDock 3 and is charging, as
indicated by the round LED indicator
on the TESTEROSSA next to the
testers power button glowing either
yellow for charging batteries or
green for fully charged batteries. The
TESTEROSSA will automatically have
its NiMH batteries charged while in
the UltraDock 3 (see image).

13. Using the Test Stone Magnifier: This
accessory will allow you to see a
magnified view of the stone being
tested and help ensure that you’re
making proper contact with the probe
GEMORO TESTEROSSA
18
tip and stone while not accidentally
touching the setting or prongs. After
removing the testers probe tip cap,
take the Test Stone Magnifier’s wider
side of its oval shaped frame and
insert it over the TESTEROSSA’s
probe tip cone in the direction of the
arrows inside of the frame and clip
it into place. Depending on whether
you are right or left handed, you may
conveniently position it on either
side of the tester. Pivot the hinged
magnifier so that it is positioned in
front of the testers probe tip. You may
now view the stones you are testing
under magnification (see image). To
remove the Test Stone Magnifier,
carefully grasp it near the oval
shaped frame for leverage and with
a slight twisting motion it will expand
the opening on the frame so you may
then gently pull it off.

MAINTENANCE:
1.The TESTEROSSA is not user
serviceable other than battery
replacement, probe tip cleaning, and
recalibration. If service is required,
please contact your supplier or the
factory. Any other attempt to repair
the tester by a user will void the
warranty.
2.Always replace the protective probe
tip cap to keep the probe tip from
becoming damaged.
3.If using alkaline batteries, always
replace the batteries after long periods
of time to prevent premature corrosion
or battery leakage, which is common
with old or spent alkaline batteries
after a period of time. Be aware that
damage to the TESTEROSSA may
occur if there is battery leakage and it
will void the warranty.
4.In the event the TESTEROSSA is not
used for an extended period of time,
the batteries should be removed.
5.Routinely clean the probe tip.
6. The TESTEROSSA is not user
serviceable other than battery
replacement, probe tip cleaning, and
recalibration. If service is required,
please contact your supplier or the
factory. Any other attempt to repair the
tester by a user will void the warranty.
HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS:
1.If substituting alkaline batteries for the
NiMH rechargeable batteries, only use
high-quality AAA alkaline batteries.
2. The TESTEROSSA is designed to be
able to easily test faceted or rough
GEMORO TESTEROSSA
20
stones of virtually all sizes. However,
please keep in mind that small stones
will naturally heat up much faster
after being touched by the probe tip.
After each test be certain to cool off
the stone by blowing on it or waiting
a few seconds until it cools if a retest
is required. If testing diamonds in a
pave setting, please note it is easy to
accidentally overheat the stones next
to the one being tested. Therefore, it is
very important that you test the stones
while alternating testing one area of the
ring and then another, while regularly
blowing on the stones to cool them off.
3. The TESTEROSSA has been calibrated
at the factory and should not require
further calibration. If after using the
TESTEROSSA it is determined that
recalibration is required, please contact
the factory for calibration instructions,
which can be easily accomplished by
any user. GemOro may be reached
at 800.527.0719, 214.351.0380 or
