Dose the location of the inclusions matter?

    Someone has made my life easier by snatching one of the three stones which I am interested in two days after I posted them. Which is fine since the magnified pic of that stone couldn''t give me a "mind clean" stone.
    And now it''s all back to coin-flipping choice again.

    After collecting a few people''s opinions, I started liking the first stone better.
    But the location of its inclusions really makes me hesitating.

    So my question is does the location of the inclusions matter?
    What do you feel about the pic of the inclusions at this location of the stone taken from the top?

    Would the inclusions be much easier to be noticed if it is that close to the center of the table?


    I really would like GOG''s sales rep to tell me if the stone is "eye clean" with inclusions that close to the center of the table. But I don''t know if anybody noticed that the store is taking a vacation and has no response to both email or voice message in this week.............A one week vacation, I wish I can have a vacation that long too.[​IMG]

    What I would do yen, is to try to contact GOG again, there was a notice on their website that there should be some staff available, so I would see if someone can get the diamond out and check it out for you. As to the location of the inclusions, if it was verified eyeclean at close scrutiny, then that would be fine for my comfort level, but I would really want the opinion of someone experienced who could see the diamond. It is possible that the inclusion may be more noticeable according to it''s location under the table, but I would wait until you can get reassurance/ advice from GOG.

    The inclusion is a cloud that seems to be invisible unless you have the right background shade.

    the lab report is helpful.

    You can see the inclusion more easily in the magnified views around the crown view - it reflects a fair bit - so it is very very likely that you would never see the primary inclusion from face up, otherwise it would likely be graded as an SI2. As i often say - a centeral inclusion is often the pick of the bunch because labs are hard on them. Possibly a VS2 if this was in the crown facets
