Shifter55 - Kozibe Dome

From The Gemology Project
Jump to: navigation, search

After doing a little bit of research on Old European Cuts I came across people discussing the "Kozibe" effect in some of these cuts. While the open culet required for the feature causes light loss it had interesting effects on scintillation in tilted stones. Having horizontally split crown mains allows for maximising this feature while retaining the dark star facet reflections that are common to OEC cuts.

If you cut this, please consider posting an image here or messaging me on the forum with a picture of the cut stone.
