Splendor; brilliancy; luster; hence, a star.
Flashes of spectral colors seen in gemstones as a result of dispersion.
Division of colors in a colorless, transparent gemstone as a result of dispersion.
Fire (or dispersion) is the breaking up of white light into the colors of the spectrum, causing the rainbow effect you see in quality stones.
the play of small flashes of color across the surface of a diamond as it is tilted. This is created by several smaller facets around the table facet of a diamond that are designed to break white light into its component colors.
The splashes of color that you see when a light source enters a diamond, and is refracted back out by the angle of the facets as well as the shape, color and clarity of the diamond.
The rainbow colors seen in a diamond as a result of dispersion.
The Fire of the color light reflects from the surface of the diamond
A synonym for dispersion.
The appearance, or extent, of spots of light dispersed into spectral colors seen in a polished diamond when it is viewed face-up.
is a term used that means the same as "dispersion". It is the variety and intensity of rainbow colors seen when light is refracted within a diamond.
The rainbow or colors that light rays form as they move through a gemstone. This is another word for "dispersion".
Light that is dispersed within a diamond. Fire is maximized by cutting a diamond to its correct proportions. (See ideal cut diamonds)
The bright flashes of coloured light displayed by a.gemstone resulting from its high refractive index and strong dispersion of light. The fire of a stone is improved by faceting. There is more fire in a correctly faceted diamond than in any other natural colourless gemstone - emeralds and rubies have brilliance, not fire.
The measure of a stone's ability to disperse light, typically seen as streaks of brilliant color within the stone itself.
(or Color Light)This refers to the percentage of the diamond returning bright colored light to the observer.
The bright flashes of coloured light given off by diamonds due to their differential refraction of light, known as dispersion.
One of the Twelve Symbols of Sovereignty, the flame is a symbol of intellectual brilliance.
The rainbow or colors that come from light rays as they enter a gemstone.
Slang for shooting a picture. Example: I pressed the shutter button to fire.
The brilliance and luminosity of a gemstone.
Colored light reflected from within a diamond. Fire is maximized by cutting a diamond to the correct proportions.
Often a term used instead of "dispersion," it is the variety and intensity of rainbow colors seen when light is reflected from a diamond.
Appearance of colours seen in certain colourless cut and polished gemstones, particularly diamonds. Fire is the result of dispersion, or the splitting up of white light into its component or spectrum colours.
Often a term used instead of 'brilliance' or 'dispersion'. It is the variety and intensity of colours seen when light is reflected from within the diamond.
This is a diamond's ability to break up white light into the rainbow of colors of the spectrum, or its dispersion.
The rainbow of colors resulting from light rays as they enter a stone.
Flashes of spectral colors given off by a gemstone. Fire is also referred to as scintillation.
When moved, these are flashes of color reflected from within a diamond, resulting from dispersion. Just like a prism, white light entering a diamond separates into all the colors of the rainbow.
Flashes of the different spectrum colors from dispersion.
To light incendiary crossbow projectile; often used incorrectly as synonym for shoot or loose.
When white light enters a diamond, it is dispersed and refracted into a spectrum of colours that can be seen by the naked eye. The term fire refers to the intensity of this dispersion of light.
The flashing spectrum of colors seen when a hearts and arrows diamond is moved, which is a result of its dispersion.
When light is refracted within the diamond, the result is that multi-colored light beams out of the table, and it somewhat looks like fire. For maximum fire, seek out a well-proportioned stone.
Fire is the prism of light that reflects from within a diamond or stone and is technically known as "dispersion". The better a diamond or stone is cut or faceted, the more fire can be emitted from within the stone.
Flashes of different spectrum colours seen in diamonds and other gemstones as the result of dispersion.
the separation of white light into the spectral colors due to differences in the refraction of the various wavelengths. Also known as dispersion.
