In general, you want a fancy colored diamond with "Even" color

This stone has an uneven color, and that is perfectly okay. In fact, that is an awesome aspect!

In the final picture of the diamond above, you can see what I am talking about. There is a gorgeous prism-like effect.

Part of this is because of the way brown manifests in diamonds. In many cases the color in brown diamonds is based on the optical characteristics of the grain.

So that if you look sideways through the diamond, it has less brown color, but you can see the orange.

Through the table the brown fades into orange. That is because the orange color in this stone goes through the entire stone.

This is a very unique piece of diamond in the way it shows both brown and orange - and importantly, the orange is very noticeable.

Although I graded it SI2 (the GIA report is color only) the color hides the slight imperfections. It is a nicely cut emerald. As such, there is a lot of great glitter.

Very cool stone!
