Hey again all! Need the experts advice on this one?!

I just attempted numerous times to scan my diamond on my flatbed scanner here. I tried to make it a big image a few times to see detail, but failed miserably. I have the table flat down on it so I figured this would show up the best. Well - as you can see below, I have a large area of shadow (blackened) area in the pic. This actually isn''t what the diamond looks like - but for those experts out there, is this what happens when the cut isn''t IDEAL? Is this because of the light refraction? Or is it just not a good idea to scan stones face down on a scanner like I did? I do not have a digital camera, so this was the best idea I had.

Any advice or opinions?
Thanks!
