Is it absolutely clear now?! Can you see it?! How could you possibly determine whether the diamond you are buying is worth the asking price and truly genuine?!
Below are some qualities of actual diamonds which may be helpful for you to know.
In buying something there are things which you should consider. Whatever the intended item. The first thing you will check is the quality of the given product you wish to purchase.
How clean a diamond is reflects on its clarity. Ideally, it should have no blemishes,or insertions, when observed by the naked eye or by a magnifying glass.
To select a good quality when buying a diamond you should be familiar with certain terminology.
The blemishes which I have mentioned earlier are flaws on the surface of a diamond. If there's any missing piece, it is called a 'CHIP' and any scrapes are referred to as a 'SCRATCH.'
Any crack found is called a 'FRACTURE'. Sometimes during the polishing stage, there are fine lines left. These are referred to as 'POLISHING LINES.' While the 'NATURAL' is the unpolished part.
In polishing a diamond you may encounter 'EXTRA FACETS' which shouldn't be present. These are excess polished surfaces which affect the symmetry of a diamond.
'BEARDING' ,on the other hand, are tiny fractures that can be found on the edge of a diamond.
'INCLUSIONS/INSERTIONS' are some imperfection which may be found within the diamond itself.
If you happen to find black spots inside the gem, that is what is termed 'CARBON', while a white spot i s called 'CRYSTAL'. An internal crack is called 'FEATHER.' Tiny spots are referred to as 'PINPOINTS' . Pinpoints happen to be smaller than a crystal, and a group is identified as a 'CLOUD' that gives large inclusion.
The instrument used to estimate a diamond is a 'LOUPE.' This instrument must be a magnification power of 10X. The housing surrounding the lens must be black to avoid distorting the color.
