Comment: The chemically most frequent impurity that causes color in diamond is nitrogen causing yellow (to put it VERY simple). Yellow as 2ndary hue is so frequent in diamond that the classic color grading system from D to F etc. is based on yellow only. The other colors, blue, red, orange etc. are so rare that no common grading classification, except the basic 'intense' or 'fancy', has been developed, yet. Now, this 4x4mm cushion is something different altogether. It is ALSO colorless but not white, because grey is NO color but only a tone, nor is it grey with a yellow tint, but only grey and thus, far, far more special than any of yellow-tinted white diamond set in e-rings every year. Eye-clean, untreated, ideal-cut and a 1000times rarer that its mundane yellow-tinted brothers and sisters. If you dare not jump into other colored gemstones but want to stay with a diamond and yet get something special, here you are: sparkly, utterly individual, brilliant, understated but truly valuable.
