Aquamarine from Erongo, Namibia precision cut in the UK. This is a light blue stone, 8.7mm across. This gem has a couple veils and some flaws, which, obviously would not make it an investment stone, but it is none the less a nice stone and would make a great pendant. The flaws I'd say add Character ;-)
This teardrop pattern should fit a lot settings designed for round stones.
Sceen Resolutions vary: Please assume that the stone may be lighter than in the photos. These pictures were taken in natural light.
All of my gems are natural, earth mined stones that I have faceted myself, and come with a money back guarantee if you are not entirely satisfied.
I am not a commercial cutter, and thus do not mass produce stones, but cut for the enjoyment of creating something beautiful, so I can spend a minimum of a couple hours on each stone. I have been faceting for almost 4 years and aim to produce the best quality cut and finish to each stone that I possibly can.
I do not cut for weight specifically, as many commercial cutting houses do, as weight is a prime contributor to price, and that most times at the expense of brilliance. Obviously I want as much weight out of the rough as possible, but not at the expence of brilliance, and most patterns I cut will be for the specific Refractive Index of each stone "species."
There is a informative video on youtube called: How gem cutting influences value. Well worth a watch.
The photos are taken with an iphone in natural light. I have looked at different screens and colours do vary slightly from screen to screen.
