Hi everyone,
I found this diamond at jamesallen and the image sparked my curiosity. I have no intention of buying this stone or anything. The small table, large spread, and dark contrasting arrows looked so interesting to me...not especially in a good way...but interesting...


For purely educational purposes, what *might* this stone look like in person?? Would it be firey, pretty, ugly, etc???

Depending on the CA and PA it might be a real firey stunner. I would not mind a small table at all. The arrows look symmetrical. If The angles are working together, I find it hard to believe it would be ugly.

there''s no angle info or crown height info.... the stone could be the same depth and be all crown or all pavillion. Either way I think the smaller tables are better for fire, but that isn''t the only factor that will determine it. It could look like a donut LOL

The girdle is Very thin in at least one spot. This would concern me.

The center of the stone looks odd or fuzzy in the magnified photo. It doesn''t look crisp to me. I would pass on it.

This is all hypothetical guess work of course.

I''m not considering this stone for purchase at all, just curious what it might look like for learning purposes. The image does look a lilttle ugly! I was just curious how this stone might appear in person.

I thought it just looked a bit blurry on the inside because of lack of focus. I would have to know what the crown and pav angles were like.
