If you use the HCA tool available on this site under "Knowledge" "advanced tools""Holloway Cut Advisor" the second stone receives an excellent score compared to the very good score for the first stone. This is not a selection tool but a guide. If you are interested in this stone then please request an ASET and post it here for review.

This is the ASET image of .85 E which scores excellent on HCA . What do you think? I can see lot of light leakage at the site of inclusion. I am waiting for the other ASET image.I'll post it as soon as i get it.

This is a very nice ASET! The inclusion seems to be located in a spot where they could likely place a prong over it so I wouldn't be worried. I would expect this stone to perform better than the F since that stone's 35.5 crown angle is a bit too high for the 40.8 pavilion angle, which will likely cause leakage.
