I am intrigued by this stone but does it look like it has a fish eye to you? In the face up photo I see what looks like a yellow outline from 1 o'clock to 5 o'clock position but it could just be the M color? Here's a link to the GIA - what are ideal angles/table/depth for an OMC? http://img.inkfrog.com/click_enlarge1.php?image=DIA589_-_1.jpg&username=thelistingmonkey&aid=208071243

and here's a link to a video of the stone spinning 100 MPH on one of those pedestal things - if you click it, you can slow it down but the angle is terrible and I can't see the facet pattern. http://arqspin.com/s/1d1xbswurc6sf

I have requested a video of the stone in the sun. Otherwise I like the shape. Okay, lay it on me, is it awful?



edited to add the link to the video

You're so right. Nothing they've given you is helpful! It doesn't look good in the photos - it's not sending back a whole lot of light.
But they are hard to photograph & obviously the stone is tilted in the photos. Perhaps you could ask for a photo with the culet dead-center.
I see they have a 30-day return policy, so it would not hurt to look at it in person if you are curious.

Yep, that video want much help. I would call and talk to the vendor about the stone. Hopefully they will be honest with you. If it sounds good then you can check it out in person,

Yes like Jimmianne said, you need pics straight on to see. It is quite spready for that size according to the report. My 2.20 is much smaller at 7.63x7.41 but it has a very high crown and is deep at 5.68.

Two more pics in its original plat mounting which I love, needs a new prong tip though. Good deal for 10k?
