    I'm going into a Brilliant Earth showroom this week to view this 2.65 ct LB diamond.

    https://www.brilliantearth.com/lab-...//www.brilliantearth.com/lab-diamonds-search/

    In terms of specs on a paper, everything checks out to my liking. HCA score is a 1.4 as well.

    My worry is that, in looking at the 360 image, I feel like I see black dots or black inclusions. Are my eyes playing tricks on me? Will this most likely not be able to be seen via naked eye since this stone is listed as VS1? Granted it's IGI rated so might not be truly VS1.

    Specs: 2.65 ct, 56.5 TA, 61.1 Depth, 34.5 CA, 40.9 PA

    you won't see any of these things in real life. These pics are hugely magnified, so it will definitely be eye clean.

    Thanks for putting me at ease. I'm going to go in and see it in person regardless before I make any decisions. I just hate that they are black inclusions. Wish they were white.

    Totally understand, but I am almost positive you won't see them in person unless your vision is super crazy.

    Agree with lovedogs that you won’t be able to see those inclusions with the naked eye.

    In terms of scintillation, my understanding is, the scintillation outcome is based off of the way the crown and pavilion angles play together and Brightness along with Fire level is based off the respective crown and pavilion angles individually?

    Scintillation is not something I can explain well :lol: but I believe it is correct to say that crown and pavilion angles that work well together will create lots of white light and coloured fire coming back out of the crown towards the viewer, the proportions of which will depend on crown height and table size, whereby higher/smaller usually means more coloured fire because the star facets and upper girdle facets are larger and therefore have more opportunity to split white light that is being returned into its constituent colours through diffraction/dispersion.

    IIRC scintillation is how one eye sees a bright facet but the other eye sees a dark facet (where both are looking at the same facet).

    Brightness is also a tricky one to explain - you can consider it in terms of overall light return (more light return = brighter) or you can consider it in terms of relative brightness to other facets (so one bright facet amongst many dark facets will mean that facet looks brighter than if all the facets were equally lit).


    Have a look at the Cutwise platform, run by Serg on here - some serious science to make your brain hurt IIRC (the site doesn't work for me on this computer but I'm sure it has science stuff on there). Garry H (Cut Nut) has also previously posted a link to an article that he and Serg have published, which covers most of it, but I'm not sure where it is on the forum and I have to go to bed now... lol

    You can see the sort of thing Serg does in this thread:

    @Dinky89484 Have you received the diamond? Do you like it?

    No. That particular one was bought. I'm lining up a few more to view next week. I'll fill you in on the one I settle on.
