This is my favorite dome design (so far). It performs very well and the low angle of the apex facets permits not to have the "hole" you sometimes find in apex designs (check it with BOG or Gemray if you don't trust my picture below). If you want you can always add a tiny table, but here it is not needed in my opinion.

I've cut it in quartz and topaz and I'm really happy with the results. Other people appreciated this design too.

Superstarfish Dome 80 - Marco voltolini

Citrine quartz, top view


Light peach/pink topaz, side view

This is my favorite dome design (so far). It performs very well and the low angle of the apex facets permits not to have the "hole" you sometimes find in apex designs (check it with BOG or Gemray if you don't trust my picture on the right). If you want you can always add a tiny table, but here it is not needed in my opinion.

I've cut it in quartz and topaz and I'm really happy with the results. Other people appreciated this design too.
