Cutting Remarks

Blue Ice - aquamarine

An approximately 7.5-ct, 29 mm x 9.5 mm Blue Ice cut from a very lightly saturated aquamarine crystal by Jeff Graham.

This gem design is easy to cut. However, it can be hard to polish because of the large facets and keel.

Cut a preform length to width ratio (L/W) = 3.000. P6, P7 are there to help prevent chips, no meets.

Enjoy cutting your “Blue Ice.”
