Do Diamonds Show up on X Rays?

Answer

X rays are machines which can scan for hidden objects, organs, and bones inside the body. One way to tell if diamonds are real are to check with x ray. If they are real, they will not show up on x rays since they are radiolucent. Materials such as cubic zirconium and crystals are radiopaque, which means they will show up on x rays. Other ways to test diamonds are to use UV lights, heat probes, and jeweler's loupes.
