Hardness
A mineral's resistance to scratching on a smooth surface. Mohs scale of relative hardness consists of 10 minerals, each scratching all those below it in scale and being scratched by all those above it.
Heart Shape Cut
The Heart Shaped Cut is similar to the Pear Shape, except that there is a cleft at the top. In fact, often the reason cutters may choose a Heart Shape over a Pear may be that the rough diamond contained an inclusion located in the cleft. The skill of the cutter can make a great difference in the beauty of this cut. The shape appeal is especially important with Heart Cuts.
Hue
Pure, spectral (prismatic) color. Hues include gradations and mixtures of red, organe, yellow, green, blue, violet and purple.
