Colored diamonds are indeed extremely scarce, yet those deemed as Fancy Intense are exponentially more rare, especially examples weighing more than 1.0 carat. In fact,fewer than one in a billion diamonds mined aroundthe world are of sufficient depth of color to even be labeled fancy color.Even fewer command the coveted grade of fancy intense.

By far, the rarest of the coloreddiamonds are those with a red or green hue, followed by blue and pink stones. This bright green, untreated stone exhibits an intensity and richness of color that is absolutely extraordinary, earning it the highest grading designation.
