Gray-blue synthetic diamonds of 1/3 carat composition, grown by General Electric were used as anvils for HPE, with the object of attaining a pressure of 125 GPa in a specimen inside a packing piece. The pressure was measured by X-ray diffration using gold and iron as calibrating substances, and also by optical methods, based on the fluorescence peaks of ruby under pressure. The prospects for the use of synthetic diamonds in high pressure studies are discussed. It is shown that high quality synthetic diamonds can be obtained.
