I have been searching for a round brilliant stone in the 1.5 carat range for several months and I finally found one that grabbed me. It is AGS 0 and the specs are all in the optimal ranges, has a HCA score of 1.5, etc. Everything checks out, except... I have a question about the ASET image. It shows a grey streak around 1 o'clock. Should I be concerned about this? The idealscope image suggests slight light leakage as a result, but based on everything else I am not sure this is a dealbreaker. I don't want to be overly picky, but I also want to be sure I am being objective and am not overlooking any concerns with this stone. I am attaching all relevant images. All thoughts, opinions, and advice are welcome!! I love this forum and I have definitely benefitted from all of the insights shared on it!

Thank you for the insights! It is probably a great stone; I just feel like I need to play devil's advocate at this point before taking the plunge. Plus, it gives me peace of mind to get some objective opinions!!

I feel pretty comfortable with this stone overall. However, should I be concerned about LGF of 76% or star of 53%?
