Transparency in diamond

Transparency, also called pellucidity,

Transparency in diamond

is the material property of allowing light to pass through.

In mineralogy, another term for this property is diaphaneity.

The DCLA Transparency Grade is the degree to which a

diamond transmits light, directly relevant to its ‘cloudiness’ or ‘haziness.’

In other words, it is a comprehensive assessment of

light performance based on the quality of the diamond crystal itself.
