I have been looking through some of the posts here in search of the answer to "What is a 'mine cut'?" I have been to most of the sites recommended on this board. This is the first interactive move I have made. So....can anyway tell me what is meant by the term 'mine' when referring to the cut. I could not find the answer before the end of the eBay auction so it's "MINE" now. Thanks.

An early form of the brilliant diamond with a squarish-shaped girdle, high crown, small table, deep pavilion, and very large culet.Here is more information for you: http://www.midwestgems.com/oldmine20.html An expert in this area is David Atlas, www.gemappraisers.com.
