I recently purchased a diamond and have a question about fluorescence. I've read up a little bit on the subject (including the .pdf posted by Barry).

The EGL certificate says fluorescence: none.

Inside and under normal lights, it appears very clear and white. When I took the diamond outside, the color changes to a soft blue. The EGL certificate says fluorescence: none.

Is this normal and OK?

Hmm....what colour is your stone, just out of interest.

I was thinking it could it be a reflection making the blue tint? Like say a blue shirt you are wearing or the sky even?

do you have a pet store nearby? can you buy a urine light? then go into a dark room and turn on the light. if it glows blue you have a fluorescent stone.
