Sakura 80 - Marco Voltolini

Citrine quartz showing the "flower effect"


This design requires a 80 index gear.

I cut it with success in quartz, tourmaline, topaz and garnet. It's quite straightforward and the resulting stone is nice; cut it in pale colors to have a good "flower" effect. Some facets can be frosted/left unpolished for a stronger effect.

I hope you enjoy cutting this. It's one of my favorite designs.

I've also a version for the 96 index gear, I hope to make it available soon
