TYPE IIA DIAMONDS ARE THE MOST CHEMICALLY PURE TYPE OF DIAMOND AND OFTEN HAVE EXCEPTIONAL OPTICAL TRANSPARENCY. TYPE IIA DIAMONDS WERE FIRST IDENTIFIED AS ORIGINATING FROM INDIA (PARTICULARLY FROM THE GOLCONDA REGION) BUT HAVE SINCE BEEN RECOVERED IN ALL MAJOR DIAMOND-PRODUCING REGIONS OF THE WORLD. AMONG FAMOUS GEM DIAMONDS, THE 530.20 CARAT CULLINAN AND THE 105.60 CARAT KOH-I-NOOR, ARE EXAMPLES OF TYPE IIA

ALSO ACCOMPANIED BY TWO REPORTS NOS. 12050056 AND 12050149 DATED 15 MAY 2012 AND 29 MAY 2012 FROM THE GüBELIN GEMMOLOGICAL LABORATORY STATING THAT THE 6.76 AND 6.06 CARAT DIAMONDS ARE D COLOUR, INTERNALLY FLAWLESS CLARITY; ALSO ACCOMPANIED BY A TWO NOTES AND APPENDIXES STATING THAT BASED ON ITS INFRARED SPECTRUM, THE 6.76 AND 6.06 CARAT DIAMONDS ARE CLASSIFIED AS TYPE IIA. ADDITIONALLY THESE 6.76 AND 6.06 CARAT DIAMONDS POSSESS AN ANTIQUE CUTTING STYLE WHICH IS RARELY ENCOUNTERED IN THE GEM TRADE TODAY. THEY DISPLAY A COLOUR AND DEGREE OF TRANSPARENCY WHICH ARE PARTICULAR TO THE FINEST OF THESE UNIQUE GEMSTONES. DIAMONDS OF THIS TYPE, EXHIBITING AN ANTIQUE CUTTING STYLE AS WELL AS A SUPERIOR QUALITY, ARE VERY RARE AND WILL MOST CERTAINLY EVOKE REFERENCES TO THE HISTORIC TERM OF 'GOLCONDA'
