I’m back to looking at settings and stones seperately- I have an inherited setting that I’d kind of like to use, but the stone in it is very clear and non-sparkly. I think it’s an amethyst, it’s a pretty light purple and not very blue. What property of stones makes the “sparkle” you’d see in a diamond or CZ? Is it fire? Dispersion? Brilliance? I’m clueless.

@MabelleBliss: Not sure which is which either, but it seems moissanite has the highest number of all the major gemstones out there if it’s sparkle you want:

Scintillation is the sparkle in a diamond as it moves. You can observe fire and brilliance and all that good stuff but usually when someone remarkes that it sparkles like a star they usually are referring to the scintillation. Brilliance is how the light is reflected. If a stone is cut too deep or shallow the light passes through the stone rather than being reflected.
