Random – Cosine – ISO


Addition # 10 – This works well in about any material, but it’s designed for lightly saturated materials. Cut in refractive indexes 1.54 to 1.73 with no changes. This is particularly nice in earrings and I like it in Tourmaline. A table can be cut on a large stone, leaving a C5 is a nice effect on smaller stones.
