Inclusions in green diamonds


#1

I have been examining a very interesting light chartreuse colored diamond.
Textbooks say color should come from some green leftover skin, crystals
inside. Well, it does not look like this stone has been treated, still
have to examine under spectrascope though. It does fluoresce light blue,
under daylight a more yellowish color. But, there are numerous inclusions
inside, thus an I grade but doesn’t really show face up only under 10X.
However, this is my question, allot of the inclusions look dendritic. Has
anyone see this before? Under 30x it looks like the color comes from the
inclusions. The stones origin is India.

Thanks!
