Online Faceting Designs & Diagrams: Blue Ice


Blue Ice by Jeff R. Graham

 

Blue Ice – Cutting Remarks

Cut a preform L/W=3.0… P6, P7 are there to help prevent chips, no meets. This is easy to cut, but can be hard to polish because of the large facets, and keel. Cut in light to medium colors, this works well in Quartz, Topaz, and Beryl,

Shown at left is a 29mm x 9.5mm ~ 7.6 carat Blue Ice cut from a very lightly saturated Aquamarine crystal by Jeff Graham. Blue Ice performs well low with RI materials like Quartz and Beryl.

Enjoy cutting your “Blue Ice”… Drop me an email to let me know your results and what you’ve cut, or feel free to inquire if you have any questions or need some help regarding this design.
