This is one of the most interesting stones to come our way.
When I opened the paper, I saw blue- and I saw a stone over 1.00carats.

It wasn't an almost blue, it was clearly blue.
Generally that combination of color and size is followed by my sigh.....after hearing the price.

When I ask "How much?"
Sometimes when the answer is simply "25"

On rare occasions- mainly with very rare colors, I have actually needed to ask..."Thousand??" (as opposed to hundred.)

IN this case, when I asked the price, and got the two digit answer I was confused.
I knew he didn't mean hundred, that was out of the question.

I was so very sure it could not have meant a number of thousands.

I thought to myself ...millions??

ALL photos and Video are of the exact diamond  you will receive

 Nope- the price of the diamond is 20.
Not twenty million. Twenty thousand- give or take $5

In terms of color- blue is no more rare than green- so in terms of value, blue and green are both astronomical.
In fact, natural green diamonds are so very rare- and difficult to judge. GIA requires cutters to submit most green diamonds before they cut, and then after- so GIA can assure it's a natural green. In this case, it's just about impossible for GIA- or anyone to guarantee a most green diamonds are natural unless they see them in the rough. The reason is that the natural radiation which turned the diamond green over the millennium is so similar to man made radiation.

This particular diamond has an incredibly rare characteristic.
The diamond has "Radiation Stains" which manifest themselves as "brown patches of color". GIA notes this in the comment section.

I can't see the brown spot in person- but I can in some of the photos.
Upon examination with a loupe, it's obvious that the cutter could have polished off the brown patches with minimal weight loss.
In fact, they were left for the reason I mentioned above- they allow GIA to categorically call this a NATURAL green diamond- but the more important reason is the actual look of the diamond. The tiny brown patches are thought to somehow intensify the perceived green color throughout the stone.

The cut is remarkable for many reasons besides that. Totally unique, yet shaped in such a way that using it in a ring seems natural. Many unusual shapes are not practical.
Plus, it's got amazing sparkle.
It's not huge for a 1.08- yet certainly looks every bit it's weight.
