The term used to describe the transparency or clearness of a mead. Mead should be clear and sparkling, not cloudy.
The clarity scale is used to describe how few inclusions a gemstone has. For diamonds, the clarity scale ranges from flawless (FL), meaning a gemstone has no internal or external flaws, to severely included (I3), meaning there are many flaws clearly visible to the unaided eye.
The amount or absence of inclusions or other imperfections within a gemstone determines its clarity. A Clarity grade can be assigned to a gemstone based on the amount of imperfections, their size, relief (contrast and appearance), and location within a gemstone. Clarity is one of the 4Cs used to grade diamonds in the AGS system of diamond grading.

Clarity is one of the Four C's used to determine a diamond's quality and ultimate value. It is measured based on the number of inclusions or flaws seen in a diamond under 10-power magnification.
The degree to which a diamond is free from blemishes/inclusions. Clarity is graded on a scale from Flawless (FL) to Imperfect (I).
One of the "four Cs" of quality grading, referring to the presence or absence of inclusions or flaws.
The presence or absence of inclusions within the diamond and blemishes on its surfaces. These slight birthmarks of nature generally do not affect the beauty of a stone, but they almost always affect its price. When a diamond is examined, the size, type, position, number, color, and relief of clarity features are observed. The diamond is always viewed with the trained unaided eye to check for relative visibility of clarity features.
A diamond often has natural imperfections, commonly referred to as "nature's fingerprints". Inclusions can be white, black, colourless or even red or green. Most inclusions are undetectable by the human eye and can only be seen with 10x magnification. Inclusions are ranked on a scale of perfection called 'clarity' ranging from IF (Internally Flawless) through to I (Included). For more information, please visit our diamond education page.
refers to the existence or absence of naturally occurring foreign elements (called inclusions) within a gemstone. The clarity of diamonds is graded on a scale from Flawless (no internal or external inclusions are visible under 10X magnification) to Included (inclusions are readily visible to the naked eye).
One of the Four C's, clarity is a term used to describe the absence or presence of a gemstone's inclusions and blemishes.
the state of being clear Testing for Water Quality
One of the "4 C's," clarity refers to the presence (or absence, ideally) of identifying characteristics, called inclusions, in the stone. Diamonds with no or few inclusions receive a higher rating for clarity and are more valuable than those with noticeable inclusions. The grades of clarity vary from F (Flawless) and IF (Internally Flawless) through to I (Included). Clarity scale I can be seen by the human eye without magnification.

A grade that indicates how many inclusions a diamond has. The scale ranges from Flawless (FL), which means that the diamond has no flaws inside or on its surface, to Severely Included (I3), meaning a diamond has numerous flaws that can be seen without magnification.
The degree that a gem is free of or has blemishes or inclusions. How clear a gem is.
The state or quality of being clear or transparent to the eye.
A graded scale that measures the amount of imperfections within a diamond. It ranges from flawless (FL) to severely included (I3).
Referring to a stone's lack of inclusions or other visual defects.
A gem's clarity is determined by judging the amount and location of inclusions seen. Basically, the higher the clarity grade, the higher the value of the gem.
A grade measuring evaluation that references the internal characteristics of a gem. When referring to diamonds the clarity rating ranges from Flawless (absolutely no visible inclusions) to I3 (describes a diamond with many eye-visible flaws.) (See 4'cs of buying a diamond)
Part of what makes every diamond unique are tiny traces of other elements or gasses that may have been trapped inside at the time the diamond was formed. These are called inclusions, nature's fingerprints, or a diamond's birthmarks. The clarity scale measures the number, size and location of these within each diamond.
Freedom from haze; transparency.
A diamond's relative position on a flawless to imperfect scale. Clarity characteristics are classified as inclusions (internal) or blemishes (external). The size, number, position, nature, and color or relief of characteristics determine the clarity grade. Very few diamonds are flawless, that means, show no inclusions or blemishes when examined by a skilled grader under 10X magnification. If other factors are equal, flawless diamonds are most valuable.
Clarity refers to the size, number and location of the natural flaws, or inclusions, found in a diamond.While usually invisible to the naked eye, the darkness, size and placement of these inclusions can affect the diamond's ability to reflect light, thus affecting its quality and ultimate cost.A grading scale is used to rate diamonds on their clarity. An I.F. rating (internally flawless) is the rarest, highest quality diamond, with no imperfections visible, even up to ten-power (10X) magnification.
The degree of flawlessness in a faceted gem. Since inclusions are a natural part of a mineral's growth, completely flawless gems are rare in many species. Inclusions of flaws in colored stones, such as emeralds, occur with greater frequency than in diamonds and are therefore more acceptable.
Degree of clearness in material or adhesive.
Clearness of a liquid measured by the amount of contaminants remaining.
The clearness, purity, absence, or presence of inclusions in a diamond.
One of the 4 Cs. Clarity describes the amount and severity of inclusions found in a diamond. Flawless diamonds are very rare and more expensive.
Clarity is the relative freedom of inclusions and blemishes within a diamond. There are 11 Clarity grades, ranging from Flawless to Included.
One of the four Cs of diamond grading (the other three being Cut, Color, and Carat), clarity refers to the perfection of a gemstones crystalline structure. When grading diamonds, the rating scale ranges from I (where visible imperfectionsâ€”or â€œinclusionsâ€â€”can be seen by the naked eye) to FL (meaning â€œflawlessâ€).

A grade given to a diamond to describe how many inclusions the diamond has. The clarity scale ranges from Flawless (FL), meaning a diamond has no internal or external flaws, to Severely Included (I3), meaning a diamond has many flaws clearly visible to the unaided eye.
A diamond often has natural imperfections, commonly referred to as inclusions, which contribute to its identifying characteristics. Inclusions are found within the diamond, and can be white, black, colorless, or even red or green. Most are undetectable by the human eye, and can only be seen with 10X magnification. Inclusions are ranked on a scale of perfection called clarity.
Clearness; Lack of haze or light scattering properties.
One of the elements of effective interpretive questions. Effective questions are clear. They should be easy to understand. If the question contains unfamiliar words, references or phrases then participants will have to spend valuable time trying to make sense of the question rather than trying to make sense of the selection.
Most diamonds, with the exception of 'flawless' diamonds, have natural imperfections, commonly referred to as "nature's fingerprints". Inclusions can be white, black, colourless or even red or green. Most inclusions are undetectable by the human eye and can only be seen with 10x magnification. The key to buying a good stone is minimising the amount of visible inclusions in the stone.

The clearness of the water in the stream.
This term is used to describe whether the stone has inclusions and how bad the inclusions are.
Describes the relative lack of imperfections inside and on the surface of a diamond. The higher the clarity, the better the diamond.
One of the 4 c's, clarity is the degree to which a gemstone is free from flaws. A clarity scale has been designed to grade flaws in valuing gemstones. For diamonds, the clarity scale runs from FL (flawless) where there are no internal or external flaws, to I3, with many imperfections clearly visible to the naked eye. A ten-power loupe is required by the FTC to accurately examine a diamond for clarity.
The stone's relative position on the flawless to imperfect scale. Clarity characteristics are classified as inclusions (internal) or blemishes (external). The size, number, position, nature, and colour determine the clarity grade.
Clarity grading for diamonds is determined by the location, type and extent of inclusions or blemishes present in or on any stone. (For more information see Diamond Grading article.)
Refers to the amount of inclusions present within a diamond and also to the amount of blemishes present on its surface. These natural imperfections are often referred to as 'nature's fingerprints'. They will mostly not affect the beauty of a diamond but will almost always affect the price. A stone with no imperfections under 10x magnification is termed 'flawless' by the GIA which is slightly misleading as in reality there is no such thing as a flawless diamond as long as you use high enough magnification.
