Hi, Karl,
I've finally done enough reading/research on Pricescope to understand (loosely speaking!
!) this article. I also a fan of the Morse or 35/41 combo. I am looking at a stone now that has a 34.5 crown angle and a 41.0 pavilion angle (AGS 0 grade) with 56.7 table and a 61 depth, color D; VS1; a little over 1/2 carat .512).
I have a question about something you mentioned in your article about this combination -- quoting:
'The other reason is that some combinations work better with different lgf% in regards to the distribution of the light return even where there is no leakage present.
This comes into play particularly with 41 degree pavilions and 33-34.5 crown angles with 55-57 tables.'
What lgf should I be looking for in this stone? I like the look of longer girdles in a stone (79 - 80 %)
but I'm not sure if the lgf reported by AGS for this stone (81) would be problematic with the other numbers.
Please advise -- thanks!
