, and topaz

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.”
