Starfish 80 by Marco Voltolini

A "malaya" garnet with a really nice color

This cut requires a 80 index gear. A nice pentagonal outline and a lot of sparkle and interesting reflections.

This can be cut in quartz as well as other minerals with higher RI.

The execution of this design is straightforward, the only minor issue that can be found is the meeting of the table with all the star facets if you have been not very precise. Then a very little cheating will do the job, pay attention not to overcut in polishing since star facets are small.

Have fun cutting it and consider publishing here some pictures.
