by CoitTower » Mar 13, 2002 I've got a question about an AGS1 stone. It's specs: Carat:.88 Clarity: VVS2 Color: D Depth:61.1 Table:55.6 Crown Angle:33.0 Pav Angle:40.9 Culet:.3 The only thing that makes it a AGS1 is the Crown Angle. Everyone touts AGS0 stones, but I've also heard that some non-AGS0 stones perform better (light return etc) than AGS0. I entered this into the HCA and it came up as .5 - within TIC range and was Excellent in 3 of 4 categories. What are the pros/cons of this stone? It seems like it is a great one from the HCA, but it is not an AGS0. How much does that matter? Will there be light leakage because of the slightly out of AGS0 standard crown angle? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
