Beginner Marquise - Michiko Huynh
This is an easy to cut marquise design. It is not complicated, but a good practice design for
1) cutting a keel in the pavilion,
2) cutting a checkerboard, and
3) cutting Low-angle facets (the facets D and E).
Cut the pavilion following the diagram. Learn where to pay attention when cutting a checkerboard. The facets D and E are not extremely low angles, but an inexperienced faceter may have an accident of the off-the-dop and flying stone. Start cutting those facets by setting the mast height so the stone is barely touching the lap and proceed carefully.
Transfer the stone to a V dop.
It is good for most gem materials. Also good for a shallow and narrow rough.
