This droplet of color, in the yellowish light that I have now, is so bright and rich in color that it is hard to call it minty, but I know that in sunlight is will not be as saturated. Its flaws are significant and can easily be seen from the back. One is a short white flaw next to the girdle and the other feather goes completely across the stone about one third of the way in from the girdle. This flaw is at ninety degrees to the table and is positioned to have much less impact on the stone than if it was at a low angle to the table. Face up the feather looks like a faint, light, irregular line. I consider this round a job well done, in minimizing the impact of the flaws on a stone that obviously could not be flawless. It weighs .76 carats and is still loving the yellow glow of an incandescent light (nice eye candy).
