Diamond Tutorial: What is Dispersion?

Dispersion: Arranged around the table facet on the crown of the diamond are a number of smaller facets which are often angled down at differing degrees. These facets, and the angles they’ve been cut have been likely been designed to break apart the brilliant white light as it meets and reflects from the surface.

It’s this effect that’s referred to as the diamond’s dispersion.

Dispersion is also sometimes referred to “fire”.
