Petaluma 80 by Marco Voltolini

Pink CZ with lots of sparkle


Another design for the 80 index gear (if you don't have it I suggest to get one!). This is another "flower" cut, even if the example cut in CZ shows "too much" sparkle. This design was intended to be cut in quartz, but the test-stone was a kunzite that didn't want to collaborate... so I ended test-cutting it in CZ. Results are satisfying, but a test-cut in lower RI would also be needed even if I'm pretty sure it works well.


This is not a difficult design to cut, and the sequence of the facets makes this design fun to cut as well. At least, I enjoy cutting it.
