Various inclusions or imperfections such as flaws, scratches, traces of minerals and other imperfections appear in the majority of Diamonds to varying degrees. As with the colour of a Diamond; a system of grading is available to determine the clarity of the stone.
The number and size of inclusions or imperfections determines the clarity grading. Most imperfections in gem quality Diamonds (SI1 and above) are not visible to the naked eye. For this reason clarity is graded under 10 x magnification. Grades correspond to the International Clarity Grading Scale.
