The Gulf Institute of Gemology, Sultanate of Oman, issued its first DNA Fingerprinting Report (DFR), on a precious coral. The DFR details the species of the coral sample through DNA analysis and details its comprehensive trace elements. The report further sets forth clear data that ensures the test sample is free of any treatment. The issuance of the DFR is the result of the collaboration between Fabio D’Amico GIG, the CIBJO Coral Commission, headed by its President Enzo Liverino and the University of Naples Federico II, in particular Professor Di Cosmo.
The coral which came from the Mediterranean Sea has been worked, fashioned and polished by 1894 Liverino srl. – and will be available for purchase.
