Okay, I found a couple of old posts discussing a 60:60 stone...would you consider this a 60:60, and would you consider it a "good buy" or not, and why? It gets a HCA of 1.6 with a VG-EX-EX-VG. It''s also GIA cert''d with a VG cut, VG polish and EX symmetry. No ideal-scope/fire-scope/etc available, have not seen it in person, I only have the certificate (sorry)!

Only if I order it, but there is a no questions asked 30 day return policy...do the numbers look ok to you? What do you think of 60:60's?

...It missed a GIA EX by -0.2 degrees (40.8) to the pavilion angle, and scoring higher on the HCA by +0.1 degree (40.5)...

i like a smaller table but if you are getting a great price and the size you want, it''s definitely worth looking at.

I think I would rather purchase something more "safe" (ie. prefered angle ratios), but I was just curious what others thought about it. I wish I lived in the States, this would be so much easier to ship things!
