Hi L0mp012”Natural” means rough surface that wasn't polished off the diamond.An indented natural is a portion of the natural surface that "breaks" inward from the diameter of the stone.To get rid of the indent a cutter should polish out more rough thus loose weight. As a result the diamond weight can drop from one range to another and the price could drop some 25%. E.g. from 1.01 to 0.96 carat.

Generally features on the outside of a stone are considered more favourably than inside
hence IF = internally flawlessIt is probably not an issue if you can not see it from above, most of these features occour near the girdle under the pavilion and can never be seen even with a loupe once the stone is set.
if this is the case, then consider the indentation as a natural signature that will allow for ID of your rock.
