The following observations on a crystal:
1) fracture: not coinchoidal but like steps sort of fracture (like lego blocks)
2) clear clevage
3) parallel grooves found
4) trigons noticed
5) shiny greasy luster
6) isometric shaped (four sided)
7) pepper spots found inside the stone
8) can scratch a glass very easily
9) falling chips
10) rainbow colour spectrum noticed inside the stone when exposed to sun light and also on bright light
11) good flourescence under uv light
By noticing these points, whether that stone got a good chance to be a diamond or not?

That is incorrect, diamonds can be fluorescent. However even with all that info it would be easier to get an idea with a photo.
