Thanks to @SouthernGent i have a little piece of yag rough thats getting chopped up mext week. I thought it might be fun for those of us working with Bryce on this to chat about the shapes and sizes we're deciding on.

I'm doing at least 2, one modified old mine and one hybrid portuguese/round that looks like a starburst.

I'm going for an elongated cushion to start. I was torn between 2 cuts, Akhavan's "aperture science" (picture 1) and Rand's "cut corners" (picture 2). I suggested Bryce choose the one he'd enjoy cutting most and went for cut corners. I would like to get some more cut, maybe make a set! Maybe a pair for earrings.

I will be having two more cut myself - one for the wife and one for the daughter. My wife's will be a cushion/asscher shape and the daughter wants one "just like dad's". :mrgreen2:

Hopefully I will be shipping my stone off to David Klass within the next couple of days. I'm still waiting on a local jeweler to give me a quote, but based on his initial quote for that lab spinel I was about to have set I don't think there's any way he's going to come close to matching David's prices.

That's so sweet! I think your wife's will be lovely too, I have a soft spot for cushions and you can get some beautiful cuts.

Gorgeous! At least there's enough rough that you can always get another cut ;)2
he said i used about half of my slice up. i am still hoping i can find someone to cut the rest into melee but that needs to go on the backburner too =)

My first piece is on the way! An 8mm round so I can check color and see what else I want him to cut :) hoping it can be a good side stone color for my faceted rainbow moonstone
