New the the world of diamond purchase and after hours of selection, found this just under 3 carat with following settings per GIA:
HCA score of 1.1
Color J
Clarity: VS1
Cut: excellent
symmetry: excellent
polish: excellent
flourescence: medium blue

HCA was good but I am completely confused by ideal scope, especially idea-scope 2 where center is light green? Should I be worried about that?

should I be worried about the yellow and blue in 2nd image?

Any comments or input would be much appreciated!.

do you have a video of the diamond?

The table looks kind of leaky to me, it's rather white in that area

Yep, looks like a good one to me! I think the lower saturation under the table is the strong backlighting as opposed to leakage.

thank you all so much for the feedback so far, I forgot to include the other 2 images which is now included. The 2nd image has some blue and yellow in it, any red flags with that?

No red flags. Still looks like a good one!

Looks like a great rock. Table is a little big possibly. At 3cts, it's hard to find very well cut stones. Really comes down to price..

ditto Karl...what are the angles on the stone (crown and pavilion specifically, table and depth to start). Or just post a copy of the GIA report.

BTW...what you have in images are
first image...ASET
second image H&A viewer showing arrows (top of stone)
third image H&A viewer showing hearts (bottom of stone)

No idealscope images.

Thank you all for your input, the specifications are:
Table: 59%
Depth:59.5%
Crown: 33
Pavillion: 40.8

What's a reasonable price for this?

how does one know if the stone is leaky or has strong backlighting?

Close to a 60/60 stone. Scores 1.1 on the HCA.

Cut lands in excellent territory according to AGS proportion charts, but with GIA variation in rounding/averaging could creep into ideal.

You have ASET image to confirm light performance, and H&A image to confirm symmetry.

If you search for similar spec stones on the search tool at the top of the forum, you should get some comparable stones come up :)

The images below show a computer generated image of a "perfectly" cut diamond with a strong back light and no front lighting.
Comparing them to an ASET or IS image in the center and under the table area will tell if the back lighting is over bright.
The patterns will change slightly based on pavilion angles but the overall effect will be there.
