After seeing Henk Prins do a scissor cut I wanted to try one based on those windowed scissors you sometimes see sphene cut as. Given the steep facets on the long sides it's best to set this on the corners or ends.

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