Sakura 80 by Marco Voltolini

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.
