by buyingsoon » Mar 11, 2001 Friends,This forum has provided very valuable for me over the last couple of weeks.My last request: Please help me decide...Stone 1 - H&A, but not certified AGS Ideal 0 Polish, Symmetry, Proportions: AGS Ideal 1.737 / G / Si1 Flourescence: Medium Blue Depth: 61.3% Table: 55.2% Crown Angle: 34.7 Crown Height: 15.7 Pavil Angle: 40.7 Pavil Depth: 42.6 Culet: .1 Girdle: 1% Cut Advisor: 1.3 Price: $14,500Stone 2 EGL Polish, Symmetry: Excellent 1.53 / E / Si1 Flourescence: None Depth: 59.4% Table: 58% Crown Angle: Crown Height: 14 Pavil Angle: Pavil Depth: 42 Culet: None Girdle: Medium, Faceted Cut Advisor: 0.3 Price: $12,600 I have both of them in my possession and they both look great in terms of brilliance. When I look into them from the top, Stone 1 shows more clearly the dark stems of the arrows you would see the special scope. Stone 2, seems to have more light bouncing around in it so it is harder to make out the distinct lines. (I wish I could explain this better). Of course, I get different stories of which is better, again, brilliance wise I don't see much of a difference. Any advice would be appreciated: which is a better value, does anyone feel that 1.7 is perceivably different from 1.5.Thanks so much for your input.I am returning one tomorrow, and I still can't figure out which one!
