Soo I found a pretty nice stone.. It has an AGS cert.. And in the comments section it states: "Fluorescence: Negligible"

Does that mean it has a little fluorescence?

Or is that equivalent to a GIA cert that says ''None''?

The term, 'negligible' is the 'politically correct' definition, meaning not worth mentioning or very little,
perhaps none.

I think, given some of the controversy behind fluorescence, some of the major labs are being more careful with the wording, gingerly walking the tight rope.
