Diamonds come in every shape, size, color, and quality. The value of these diamonds are determined by what is commonly referred to as the 4 C‘s of diamonds. So what are these 4 C‘s? They are the diamond’s Clarity, Cut, Carat, and Color.
Today we will take a look at clarity. The clarity of a diamond can be determined by the number and size of inclusions in a diamond. Just about every natural diamond found will contain some amount of non-crystalized carbon (the element that diamonds are made of). Most of these inclusions can not be seen by the naked eye and require some form of magnification to be found. Lager inclusions can interfere with the dispersion of light and negatively affect the diamond’s brilliance. When more prevalent the inclusions the less valuable the diamond; the fewer inclusions, the rarer the diamond. Each diamond can have inclusions in various positions in a diamond. VVS, VS, and SI inclusions are not visible to the naked eye, they are only visible while using magnification.

Every now and then we stumble across an awesome piece of history. This vintage 1984 Gibson Explorer is definitely one of those items! The Gibson Explorer was originally put on the market in 1958–the same year as the Flying V. It was Gibson’s answer to calls for a crazy, futuristic design.
Even with its unique styling, the Explorer was not very successful and was discontinued in 1963. In 1976, Gibson began reissuing the Explorer after it became very popular with hard rock and heavy metal bands in the 70’s and 80’s.
This particular electric guitar was made in 1984 and sports two open coil humbucker pickups. Believe it or not, this guitar was pearl white in 1984. Over time, the white finish in known to yellow from the elements. Some within months–some within years! Come on by our Belleview, FL location and see this beauty!
