Looks nice to me, but I personally would rather have a larger stone with a lower clarity. Maybe VS1 or VS2. Also take a look at stones with smaller tables. I like <57%. This one you listed will have a 60/60 look. Which is nice, but it is all up to personal preference.
Good luck on your search! Have fun with it, it is an exciting time!

Thank you so much for the response.

Are there any RB stones you would recommend? My budget is about $11k.

#1 is bad. Look at the white ring under the table (light leakage)
#2 is promising. But you need the actual IS/ASET. The ASET image is computer generated. While it looks good, the computer generated ASET tends to be lenient.

Thank you for the two stones you posted. I will look into them. They look very nice.

A few questions: are ASET images good enough to tell how good the light reflection is? Is it better to see the IS images as well? This is because some vendors don't have the mechanisms for IS images.

One or the other is sufficient in most cases. Having both is for extra assurance, although one can reveal minor details that the other does not show. Both are consistent and reliable, and nearly always confirm each other, as you can see in your original post

Here is a PS article - if you are interested - on why some prefer as ASET to an Ideal-Scope.
