Brilliance, Dispersion and Scintillation are three properties a well cut diamond exhibits. All three properties have to do with the way light interacts with a diamond. Light reflected off the diamonds is know as brilliance . Dispersion is the flashes of color in the diamonds as white light rays are separated into color. Also know as fire. Scintillation is the flashes of color when the diamond is moved back and forth.
