What is good and bad fluorescence? Learn about the influence on color and brightness and find out how GIA grades by its intensity. 

Fluorescence simply explained: 

The difference in energy between the absorbed light and emitted light is called fluorescence. By no fluorescence is the absorbed light equal to emitted light, Neutral. On certifcates it is described as NONE If the emitted light is stronger than the absorbed light the diamond is called fluorescent.

You will find fluorescence in following grading:  NIL or NONE, Faint, Slight, Medium, Strong, Very Strong. The fluorescence can be Blue or Yellow.

D - E - F colors with Strong Blue fluorescence are exceptional and therefore extremely rare,  accentuating the brightness. Called Blue-White diamonds.

When white diamonds in D to F color are Blue fluorescent it quotes the color to the highest grade BLUE WHITE.

Warmer white colors from G to Z with Blue fluorescence will enhance the Color to white and will look closer to colorless White. A very positive fact.

Very strong fluorescence can influence the clarity when it turns milky. You will see by naked eye that the diamond turns milky.  It is always clearly indicated on the GIA, HRD and IGI certificate.
