1515288922_image.jpgThis 32ct New England smokey-citrine rough was found by my brother's daughter, it had lots of inclusions that posed significant technical challenges, but the colour made it irrisistable to cut and yielded a 6.6ct reward for her eagle-eyes.

Amazing job Wally. You surprise me with your hidden talents. You will have to visit and get some reddies to cut.
cheers steve

Thanks Steve, I surprise myself sometimes too, turned out much better than I thought as I managed to get excellent polish and all faces have precision meet points. Took me a bloody long time but the effort has done wonders in enabling the stone to show its true brilliance.

I have a little secret lto share between forum friends - I have one error in the cut that I know very well, but as it is in the girdle, it will be obscured by any mounting clasp.

Those reddies have been occupying my mind of late Steve, love to get a nice cutter, I can still remember some of those brilliant orange flashes mixed in with the reds. I can imagine a cut one of those being able to blind a man. Will let you know when I can get a weekend escape, unfortunately no respite in sight ATM.
