Easy Does It – Cutting Remarks
Shown at left is a 12.5 x 8.3mm deep ~ 6.24 carat “Easy Does It” cut from green Nigerian Tourmaline by Jeff Graham.
This is quick and easy to cut and is a variation of the “Easy Tri” but designed for larger stones. Larger stones need a little more interest in the pavilion and I have places “splitters” on the pavilion of this design to give it more life for large stones.
This cuts fast and is not difficult. I use this design pretty often and it is one of my default trillions that I cut. It has the classic trillion out line that flows and just generally looks nice in about any thing.
I like it in Tourmaline and Garnet, but this works well in about any material. There is a very interesting reflection pattern in this design that works well and looks nice in any medium to light saturation.
Cut this in refractive indexes 1.54 (81.1%) to 2.14 with no changes.
