    1.51 ct
    7.37 - 7.41 X 4.56mm
    61.7 % depth
    56% table
    thin to med. facet
    no culet
    EX Polish & Symmetry
    SI1, G
    No fluour. Nothing in comments. One worry is a crystal close to 6 o clock which looks like it is on table (center piece) and a feather at the end (will that feather turn into something larger when set?)

    OGI has a HCA score of 2.6
    with 35.1 degree crown angle
    41.1 degree pavillion angle
    and .6 culet (using OGI table and depth %)

    $9823



    And the other>>>>>>>>
    From GIA
    1.53 ct
    7.45 - 7.49 X 4.56mm
    61. % depth
    56% table
    thin to med. facet
    no culet
    EX Polish & Symmetry
    SI1, G
    No fluour. Comments = Clouds not shown. Surface graining is not shown.

    Has a HCA score of .8
    with 34.7 degree crown angle
    40.7 degree pavillion angle
    and no culet information (using table and depth % from GIA cert)The thing is, I am not sure if it is a Sarin (though said they use Sarin on their Site)

    ~$9937

    Please help. Thanks

    By the numbers only, I'm liking number 2 better. You need to see it or have an independent appraiser see it to check out those inclusions.

    SO, how does clouds and surface graniness affect the stone?

    We'll wait for an expert to show up. I think that it is possible for the clouds to be an issue, but not always.
