Hi Experts

I couldn't attach the pictures of the the stones detailed in my posting earlier today, but I mailed them to pricescope.com address. Could you have a look at them and answer the queries detailed in my earlier posting today.

Thanks

Go to www.ideal-scope.com and click the lower left "Fancy shaped diamonds"

It is very hard to help you from the pic - even though it is a good shot.
I think the stone on the left leaks more and has less scintillation.

Hi Cut Nut

Did you see that I posted the measurements to both the stones on my previous posting earlier today? Taking this info into account as well as the way the photos look, do you still think that the left hand stone leaks more light and has less scintillation?

Thanks

Garry,

Are you basing the leaks more on the lower amount of black reflected from the front in the left hand one?

No the black is camera lens reflection James.
The dull deadish areas are probably leakage, but it is a gut thing, not a certainty.
By using the Idealscope all the time I now do not even bother trying to assess the leakage with a loupe. I just get lazy.
I would never buy a diamond without it.
BTW Christian has worked out the best lighting method - a foolscap sheet of paper taped and hanging in front of a desk lamp.
