Nice size but I do have a question.
From the middle of the table running out to about 5 O'clock, in the first pic, is that a flaw/inclusion would that be noticeable in the big stone and in the 3rd pic there's all these straight lines in the pav, is this just bouncing off the first line right in the culet or would there be more than one?
I know it's rated VVS but just wondring on it being a bigger stone.
No denying, it's gorgeous.

I dont see anything in the 1'st pic but i do see the lines in the third. I suspect they are needle inclusions. The tsav I had for sale here recently had those but they were only visible under 10x. Besides, my thought for this gem was for a recut.

:lol: You had too much caffeine?
First pic, kite shaped facet 5 o'clock, pick the dark line up in that pale rectangular facet (Inside the kite shaped one) , it runs to the girdle and back up into the table...Now you see it?

it might be recuttable, hard to tell when you don't have it in front of you.

I would think that is too shallow for a recut at that price. You would be lucky to get a 1.75 to 2 ct stone out of it. It would be much cheaper to start with a piece of rough.

Well then, it certainly can not be a VVS.
