I am no expert :) but I think it looks pretty - flowery and slightly wonky enough to have character :)

Can you get an ASETscope image for it?

It’ll look pretty lifeless under the table faceup. It’ll likely keep looking pretty lifeless until tilted significantly (from faceup), at which point only whatever main(s) happen to now be “faceup” will scintillate.

Better in terms of evenness of face-up brightness and contrast across the diameter of the stone...

1. What’s going on at the culet? That dark grey ring around that facet - whatever it is is reflected throughout the stone in the kozibe. Is the stone chipped? If it’s hugely worn facet meets - why there and nowhere else?

2. Is it eyeclean to your requirements, whatever they may be?

I'm totally unexperienced in OECs lol I am interested in seeing the Kozbie effect & this stone to me looked pleasing but I'm a total layman when it comes to antique cuts

I do see what you mean about the Culet though, I think it has a few girdle nibbles but nothing major is disclosed -

To me it's Eye-Clean I can't really see anything that would stand out to me, It's listed at $1500 too much?

Can anyone please comment on this diamond? The seller says it’s eye clean and sparkly but this is the only photo. Thanks! 001C46C8-FFAB-4C9B-8124-1D933BB5B296.jpeg

I'm assuming you passed on this one. If you happen to know whether it's still available could you share the name of the seller? Thanks!

I was thinking the same thing! What do you think of the one I just posted? Any good?
What I love about the stone from that picture is the appearance of edge-to-edge brightness! Just gorgeous. But even though I'm far from eagle eyed, I'd insist on more pics - even if it's a great price.

I'm trying to find a match for a 5mm(ish) OMC and as usual, most online sellers are beyond my budget

A big culet and small table With good depth (>65) produces the kozibe. I am a kozibe fan! The first one looks ok, #two too big table, imo. 3rd one no culet, not my cup of tea.
