Having photographed all these gems myself I now understand the difficulty in capturing the beauty, color and clarity in gemstones through the lens of a camera. Light hitting the underside facets makes the gems appear darker and also affects the clarity of the stones so instead of being clear and bright they have dark colored bands and shiny facets thus impeding the natural clear bright colorful beauty.

If you carefully consider all the data given telling you the size, clarity and color as well as my comments on each stone you should have a good indication of how beautiful each stone is.

All of the stones are cut to obtain the biggest size, the best quality and brightest appearance.
