    If it is modern, the cutter was either drunk, or the rough was not optimal with its inclusion placement :lol:

    That was my first thought as well ... but the more I look at it, the more I wonder if it could be a VERY early attempt at an asscher cut.

    @chanieish I wonder how a diamond with its pavilion cut like that would look. :think:

    And just FYI/FTR, I am not considering this diamond for a purchase. Rather, it just genuinely intrigued me sheerly out of curiousity ... once my eyes straightened back out. :lol:

    that is so strange also it is sooo deep!

    I would purchase it just for fun but it is not fun enough for 12k!

    What a find! They should advertise: “Rough diamond for sale. Suitable for an Asscher, Emerald cut.” :D

    I legit think this may be an early (old cut) asscher attempt ... I just can’t believe someone cut that with a straight face otherwise. :eek2:

    just a badly cut step cut.
    Spin the diamond and look at the pavilion and you will see why,
    Super long steep p1-2 with little difference in angle p1-3 and then a shallow p4 with angle variations n/s vs e/w relative to how its photographed.

    Its nuts I had to look 3 times just to make out it had a 4 step pavilion the first 3 are so close to each other in angle.
    Why bother with 4 if your going to cut them that close to one another?

    It looks like The Hall of Mirrors at the Fun House! You young ones probably don’t even know what I’m talking about. They would have them at carnivals. They would make me so sick! :sick:

    @Mamabean I remember those and they would do the same to me. :sick:

    @Karl_K do you think it was intentionally cut that way, or perhaps a ‘learner stone’?

    The GIA report says it's an EC, is it even the same stone?? The diagram on the GIA doesn't look like it...

    They were probably equally confused as to what to call it.

    7.4/6.95 = 1.06 which is larger than 1.05 l/w so gia calls it an EC rather than a SE and uses the generic diagram for a 3c/4p EC.

    @caf The seller didn’t represent it as an old cut; rather, that was my thought/suspicion. It’s not a stone I am actually interested in buying; I came across it browsing and thought it was rather ... interesting.

    What stinks is it has a kicken crown, if it had a matching pavilion and weighed around 2.15ct..........

    Could this diamond have it’s pavilion recut while leaving the crown intact or would it have to be a full ‘top to bottom’ recut?

    Without a cutter looking at the stone its impossible to say for sure.
