Cleanliness of a brilliant

Clarity is a quality of diamonds relating to the existence and visual appearances of inclusions and surface defects. The number, location and size of various natural inclusions can affect the relative clarity of a diamond. Inclusions exist almost in any diamond. The smaller the number and total amount of inclusions, the more valuable the diamond.  A clarity grade is based on the overall appearances of the diamond under 10-fold increase magnification.
