Loose colored diamond video

I just did two videos of loose diamonds for Lotus Colors. These diamonds are enhanced to bring out optimal color, and they are really intense!  Below I show a comparison between the still photograph and the video I did of the same diamond.

One of the challenges of shooting very small diamonds like this is mitigating vibration. I use a combination of software (the warp stabilizer in Adobe Premiere and After Effects is particularly effective) as well as solid equipment. I use a big heavy tripod, a solid shooting table and a turntable from Arqspin (https://arqspin.com).  However, even with good equipment, some vibration is inevitable and must be cleaned up in post-production.
