It's probably a mass marketing campaign selling "low commercial" quality brown stones for high retail prices.

A 3mm stone is 0.10 carat, which is being offered at 600 per carat. The stone will probably not have as pretty a hue of color or as nice a cut as the one pictured, and an "SI2" description is dangerously close to a broad "I1" category which is loosely used by mass marketers.

You can purchase champagne SI ten pointers from your local jeweler for less.

Disclaimer- I could be totally wrong.
