People buy various gemstones due to their different appeal. Likewise, diamond collectors look for various properties when buying one for their collections. When it comes to fancy colored diamonds, it is obvious that color matters most. However, did you know that there other other aspects of a diamond that can make them alluring to buyers?
The most common color of fluorescence found in naturally occurring diamonds is blue.
