A stone’s depth is calculated by dividing its height by its minimum width. Depths are always described in terms of percentages. Most gemstone enthusiasts agree that 60 to 80 percent depth is ideal. Depth is important because it determines how the color saturation of a stone is perceived. Stones with too little depth may appear washed out while stones with too much depth may simply appear very dark.
