He developed it in 1902, primarily producing the ruby & sapphire varieties of corundum, and later progressed to some varieties of diamond simulants. The man made corundum crystals produced by this method are chemically, optically & physically the same as natural, earth mined crystals. Only gemological testing can determine the difference between the two. This process was revolutionary in its time and is considered to be the founding step of modern crystal technology.
It remains in use to this day. This is because credit cards require both a signature and tracking.
