Hard Roku - Marco Voltolini

Rendering simulating orange garnet
Test cut in pink cubic zirconia
Rendering simulating amethyst

This is a triangular checkerboard cut with an hexagonal outline. The "bars" in the pavilion crate a very nice pattern, and a good amount of sparkle.

In the pavilion two tiers have no meets and some eyeball calibration is needed to cut even "bars". The crown is quite easy to cut, for a checkerboard, but some attention is needed.

This design have been optimized for quartz (no need to worry about the tier of the pavilion at 41 deg, since there is no table), but it gives good results for any RI >1.53: check the renderings for quartz and garnet, and the test cut in CZ in this page.
