Cloud:
Clouds are hazy or milky areas made up of tiny pinpoints inside a diamond. Most clouds are made up of crystals too tiny to see individually under a loupe. Clouds are typically hard to find in diamonds with high clarity grades. When clouds are large and dense, they diminish transparency and can make a diamond look undesirably white.
