Crystal, Inclusion:
Found in all shapes and sizes, crystals are tiny bits of a mineral, or air bubble, found inside a diamond. Many different minerals have been identified as crystal inclusions in diamonds, but the most commonly found crystal is another diamond. Minute crystals that look like small specks under 10X magnification are call pinpoints. Large crystals, especially those visible to the naked eye, can lower the clarity grade of a diamond.

DoW does not sell diamonds with significant crystals that have an impact on the diamondís overall brilliance or quality.
