The "surface graining & clouds" comment is an indication that there is transparent surface graining and clouds which were detectable but minor, and not plotted on the diagram.

The clarity grade given takes these inclusions into account, so the fact that it received a VS2 means that they are minor inclusions. When I looked at the photo I didn't see the clouds, but the surface graining is (barely) noticeable in some areas as faint transparent diagonal lines.
