Here it is a pretty novelty cut.

Please note all facets are above the critical angle (this design is intended for quartz) with the exception of the frosted ones (plus the other ones needed to obtain the shape of the petals, and the culet). The result is a sparkling stone with a flower in the bottom, diffusing the light coming from the other facets. A nice effect: this design is worth a try, you won't be disappointed.
