Feather:
Because of their appearance, cracks are sometimes called feathers. Normally, you donít need to worry about the cracks if they are small. A feather may be impossible to see to the unaided eye and with a 10X magnification. It is not uncommon for a diamond to have a feather, but DoW will not carry a diamond with a feather(s) that affect the diamonds overall quality and brilliance.
