Diamond transparency can be affected in many ways. Certain types of inclusions, such as clouds and twinning lines, structural phenomena such as graining, and even fluorescence can have an impact on a stone’s ability to transmit light.
The technical qualities (Carat/Cut/Colour/Clarity) can only be considered on an individual basis to the stone you’re looking at. This only further reinforces why it’s so important to consider many options in the technical criteria you’ve fine-tuned so that you can select the best visual option with the highest ‘Raw Crystal Transparency’ for your piece of handcrafted jewellery.

In fact, technically rare material is more often than not cut to retain weight.???
