If it''s not a carbon spot, what is it exactly?

I went to a loose diamond show this afternoon and found one that I really liked, but it had a carbon spot that I could see without a loupe. The woman assured me that the jeweller could put the stone so that the prong covers it up. When I called it a carbon spot, she told me that it''s a misconception and that it''s just a flaw with the crystals and not really carbon. I''m confused now...if it''s not carbon, what is it? Or was this lady a card short of a full deck?

My understanding is that there is no actual carbon as inclusions in diamond. I would think that it would be either garnet or diopside.

Congrats on your new LO Annette! Indeed, Noah is a great name.


Maybe I should get the diamond with a bit of garnet in it, it is my son''s birthstone after all.
