That is rather a large black crystal on the edge of the table. It may not be eye clean. It is also an example of a 60/60 type of diamond. This type will have more brilliant white light and less rainbow fire. A diamond with more fire is preferred by most PSers. If you are interested in this diamond ask if it is eye clean and at what viewing distance from the diamond.
If you are open to another diamond. Post your budget and desired color and clarity. Many here enjoy helping others select a diamond.

That is a lot of choices lol
Now to try and narrow it down to the best bang for the dollar.
And size and cut being most important factors
Thank you

Well, the AGS 000 will definitely have good light performance, and the GIA XXX had filters applied to remove stones that are outside the PS-recommended parameters, so there is a reduced risk of poor performers.

@Garry H (Cut Nut) - may I check if there would be the possibility of adding a column in the search results that shows what the 'Looks Like' rating is?

It could be useful for those seeking spready MRBs, as sully is!

If you want to maximize spread then a 60/60 style stone will accomplish the goal. This means the table and depth both equal 60% or thereabouts.

The trade-off will be a shallower crown and more bright light return as opposed to the bigger bolder rainbow flashes most people seek.

This is neither good or bad, but rather a preference. It would be my suggestion you look at some stones in person with various proportions to see what YOUR eyes prefer.

If you determine you like this look you can alter the search criteria to include 58-60 tables and 60-61 depth, which will effectively kick back shallow spready stones.
