I''m more of a fan of fire than of white light return. Will the specs and images for this stone result in lots of fire (more fire than white light)? Also, will the flashes of light and color that this stone returns be broad and large or thin and narrow? Any help would be appreciated!

Well balanced between the 2 with a reasonable amount of both.

scintillation - will be on/off because its a classic girdle.
Fire - RB - med to small chunks.

Thanks, Storm. I appreciate your help. Does RB stand for round brilliant in your post? In order to get larger flashes of fire, I would have to have shorter LGF than 77.6, is that right?

Also, is the crown angle high (enough) to give lots of fire?

yes RB == Round Brilliant because RB - large would be small for a step cut or even an oec.

Yes in general shorter lgf% will have bigger flashes.
The angles are fine.

I think it will be a little more firey than an average well-cut stone, but it should be a nice white-light performer as well. Lovely diamond really!
