Easy opp square - Marco Voltolini

4.60ct African amethyst

This design is VERY easy and results are showy, as most opposed bar designs are. It is one of the simplest opposed bar designs around, but the effect is surprising, for a cut with such a low number of facets. Plus, it is a square shape (I was requested for a square opposed bar...) in case you need a square stone.

I nick the corners on big stones to avoid chipping, for stones meant to be set.

This design should work reasonably well also in tourmalines with dark c-axis.
