The cut of a gemstone can enhance not only the color but the sparkle of the gemstone.

Most gemstones have flaws, but rather than detract from its appearance, such flaws can actually enhance the overall esthetics of the gemstone.
Enhancements, such as heat, resin infusion, or special coatings, are treatments that improve the clarity or color of the gemstone.
The size of a gemstone is measured as the top-view diameter.
