Lembke - Tourmaline Caterpillar
This is a design created at request by GemGalleryAfrica (23/09/15) on the Gemology Online forum for closed c-axis green tourmaline. A rectangular cushion outline and a keeled pavilion were also preferred, as was a design that’s a bit unusual. With 117 facets and meetpoints lacking, this is not the simplest of designs to cut, however the design tests well in Gemray. How the design performs in closed c-axis tourmaline is yet to be determined. Should you happen to facet this one please send me a photo of the finished stone (firstname.lastname@example.org) so I can add it to this page and verify the performance of this design.
