Greenish? I went back and looked and I saw it then. Good for you diamondnewbie for seeing green. Who won? I guess I'll look through and see who was closest.

Hi David, Great Contest...

Here's my guess--
Color: Fancy light brownish greenish yellow
Weight: 4.10 carats

I think this guess is the closest. Wow. Good detective work.

Great job DN!  Whoa, I'd have never seen that green. I mean as a separate modifying color. I was thinking the stone looked a lot like ChiChi.
I also see many other colors like red and orange flashes.

David, how is the green chosen over, say the orange flashes? Are there specific lightening conditions the GIA uses to grade under? Does everyone have to wear only white to work?!!?

Hmm...Diamondnewbie, you were either listening on the other side of the door, or you are psychic.

Hi Everyone!

The three closest to the exact weight win a $50 to certificate, and the closest guess to the color wins a $50 gift certificate.
No one guessed exactly in either category.

And the winner are:
Big Winner is diamondnewbie who got remarkably close on the color- missing only because she said Fancy light brownish greenish yellow- while GIA called it Fancy ( no light) brownish greenish yellow.  Congratulations, that was remarkable!

diamondnewbie was also one of the three closest in terms of the weight.  Therefore she wins $100 store credit.

The other two winners are shamrock,GIAgirl who missed by 10 and 12 points respectively

Great going guys!!!

WHOO HOO!

I knew it had green in it! I could see it in all the
pics, but the 4th picture for sure!

The diamond is priced at $30,450

I think we need a video of this one.  I saw one of these in person and it was gone for Christmas, probably because of its COOL color.
