Flawless

The highest level on the clarity grading scale of gemstones. A stone is defined as flawless when it’s inclusions are not visible according to the scale on which it is measured. For example, diamonds are graded using a loupe at 10x, so termed flawless where no inclusions are seen at this magnification, whereas emerald clarity is graded by eye, so termed flawless where it is eye-clear.
