by sparks » Mar 21, 2002 Please clarify something for me. If you were to see a dark center in a diamond that is tilted about 45 degrees, is this because it is a poorly cut diamond? Is it the light leakage under the table? Face on, the diamond is white. I have seen this in diamonds I have examined. Even when I am tilting the diamond and looking in a mirror, I see the round dark center. Thanks!
