Yesterday’s labours, a nice big black spinel EMERALD CUT and a sweet little citrine PRINCESS CUT.  In the hand,  the colour of the citrine looks like a yellow diamond.

Finished! A couple of big Flinders Island topaz,  also known as ’ Killiecrankie Diamonds’. These were cut from the client’s own rough they found on a fossicking trip to the island. They are nice big gems,  one is 17.1mm and 19.1ct. The other is 19.3mm and 26.8ct. Very impressive stones!

Doing the fine cut on this big O’Briens Creek topaz. Here I’m using one of my favorite laps, a 1200 grit sintered copper lap. It cuts super fine and gets the facets ready for the 3K prepolish.
