    Notes:
    I have no clue why this gem is so saturated. It is not dark C axis material. I tried it first with a brilliant design and it was black as midnight. Then I went back and did a step cut pavilion; well a little better but not a lot... So that being said I am sick of this gem as I have way too many hours in it for its performance !!! The rough was not overly dark but Lord only knows what is going on in this monster as I have never had this happen before in almost 30 years and thousands of cut gems and hope I do not again. Priced below rough cost and will be happy to say bye bye to this rascal !!! No treatment.
