Here''s my first (failed) attempt to show all 9 CC garnets. In this first picture, I used a daylight fluorescent and a full spectrum fluorescent, because I didn''t have two daylight fluorescents. These mixed fluorescents actually make the color change weaker, since the full spectrum fluorescent has strong oranges and reds, which brings the color closer to incandescent bulbs. Look at the shield cut on the right. The big side of the shield is showing the cooler color of the daylight fluorescent. The point side of the shield is showing much more orange due to the enhanced red phosphors of the full spectrum tube. The round front center stone is not showing its pastel green well in this picture, because the fluorescents are too far to the side, in order to illuminate the center two rectangular cuts.
