I am buying a stone with an EGL-USA cert, but how can i tell which lab in the US graded it? also, which of the EGL USA labs are the most reputable?

thanks

The EGL number indicates it. You can verify any EGL US report on their website.

It's been suggested several times by many others in your other threads.....if you're concerned about the veracity of the color grading, take it to an independent appraiser. I even recommended one to you. It's not that we're not trying to be helpful, but we cannot possibly opine on a diamond we haven't even seen, and you should really get a professional appraiser to do it.

I'll say it again....the US labs of EGL are more stringent than their foreign counterparts, but the US labs can be spotty in accuracy when compared to AGS or GIA.
