Can we get more information? A regular picture of it. The certificate type, the color, clarity, proportions and carat weight as well as price?

Ahh. Well. I don''t like the windmills, personally. They look bowed out and kinda dead to me. But it''s got a nice crown height and the spread is decent.

really, i''m trying to get away from the small l:w like on the above stones. she is wanting something like the traditional 1.4 or >. this stone was sent by mistake and i just thought i''d run it by some others before i told them to send it back.

It looks ok on ASET but not the best if you see what I mean, see what strmy says.

I like it.
The windmills being closer to pointing to the opposite corner actually increases the light return.
One windmill is just slightly bent but it wont be eye visible.
Overall it is very nice.
The aset is excellent.
It should be a bright fiery EC.

what do you think about the grey parts in the middle on the is? do you think it will affect the fire in the center of the stone?

obstruction, it is green in the ASET so it is fine.

Obstruction should be blue, not green, right?
But this emerald looks very cute to me!

IS has a different degree of obstruction than ASET.
At some distance it will switch between the 2 looks.
Research is pointing to green in ASET being the more accurate representation.
The hand pic shows it, slightly less return in that area not obstruction.

I like it. Bold patterns without being overly dark.

Yes, not really obstruction, that''s what I thought.
