Klaja - Radiation

This design is supposed to help with the problem of dark garnets, i.e. namanga. I suggest a size of no greater then 4 mm.

This (reworked) design is untested. A previous test cut was made, this is the reworked version to offer more interesting reflection pattern and better light return.

Note: This design is not relying completely on the meet point technique. Instead the pavilion is based on the observing of the cutter, where i.e. one tier is cut 100% deeper then the previous one etc. (or, twice as deep) Not very practical, but it produces an interesting gem.

The crown however is normal meet point.
