Shifter55 - Beginner Tetra

This got redesigned after an interesting conversation with Symmetrygemstones on reddit, it now cuts edge-on and should be quicker and easier to facet.

Should give good light return in everything from Opal (1.45) to Zircon (1.81), diamond simulants seem to be too refractive due to how deep the stone is.

You will need to take care with meeting the points after transfer due to the lack of girdle, but as long as you don't overcut there is a little leeway with the meet.

If you cut this, please consider posting an image here or messaging me on the forum with a picture of the cut stone.
