Beautiful. How did you have it set ?
I'm a little annoyed with myself for posting here, bumping this oldish thread (though, of course, not sorry for reminding people there are a lot of fun diamonds in this world that don't "meet parameters" ). I wanted to put it in the "odd/unusual mined diamonds" thread, but after 15 minutes on the search tool, I couldn't find it!
Anyway: look at this cool diamond. It has a big ol' spessartite (?) crystal right on the table, AND VSBF, and it's an F. It's even niftier in the video, but in the still, the crystal is around 11 o'clock.

I can't tell if this is orange enough to be spessartite vs pyrope, or if the distinction is purely an academic one but this was why I thought spess!The brownish-pink inclusions, presumably pyrope garnets which are frequently associated diamond-indicator minerals & occasionally known to be included in diamond crystals of course, are also not displaying any birefringence (so probably are not something else like zircon for instance, altho their crystal shapes look distinctly elongated & much more like tetragonal, consistent with zircon for instance, than isometric like pyropes) & are also not fluorescent to 405nm.
This one is so odd to me. It's a really... colorful K
It's also a really... busy VVS1
The internal graining is so intense and radial that I almost think I really like it... or hate it. I can't tell.
