A nice little heliodor beryl being crafted into a tapered step cut. Something a little different.

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.
FLINDERS ISLAND TOPAZ :: MIXED CUTS - TROUBLE WITH TRIBBLES - PRINCESS CUTS :: 17.2MM 19.1CT - 19.2MM 26.9CT - 8MM 3.8CT :: Here is a beautiful suite of topaz that I recently cut for a client from their own rough. I LOVE TOPAZ! You can cut BIG gems and they ALWAYS look amazing. One of my favorite stones.
Reckon you could wear one of these big ‘Killiecrankie Diamonds’ on your finger?
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!

Finishing up a big pair of beautiful O’Briens Creek topaz. Doing the final 100K polish.
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.
A stone a day… and today it’s a nice big O’Briens Creek topaz.
