Diamond with Unusual Laser Manufacturing Remnant
A 3.59 ct Fancy Light brownish greenish yellow diamond recently submitted to the Carlsbad laboratory for examination displayed an unusual laser feature.
The table of the blocked heart shape showed a laser remnant with an interesting pattern that resembled a watch face (figure 1). Unlike the typically linear remnants, this feature was circular and located directly on the table. The cutter’s intentions for placing the 0.9 mm diameter circle on the table are unclear, but it makes for a striking pattern rarely seen on diamonds, especially finished stones.
