4 Way Stop – Cutting Remarks

This is a fun one to cut, but it is a little harder than it looks. The straight meets on the crown can be tough to get lined up. This is a good design to cut a large stone in, with the small facets on the crown it pretty much needs to be large. A medium to light saturated material is best and this will work well in, Quartz, Topaz, man-made Sapphire, Spinel, YAG, and CZ with no changes.
