How come in some diamonds I see mostly red fire and in my diamond I see a mostly blue and green (some orange here and there)?

Are you talking about an Aset scope reference or what the light the diamond gives off when it sparkles?

I think it depends on the lighting Daisi, if you slowly tilt and watch your diamond closely you might notice some other colours coming from it if you are in lighting which is conducive to fire.

I''ve noticed that it really only ever sparkles with green and blue (some orange here and there) in every lighting except sunlight where it''s just really bright white with loads of white sparkles....

Try with the sun at different times of day, very direct sun can make some diamonds look dark with no life, I prefer later afternoon sun for my best fire and performance effects
where it isn't as intense. Also I just remembered in a bathroom my diamond shows more blue and green fire than red!
