    Has anyone experienced this problem with CZ. Picture attached, after prepolish with 1200 lightinglap. The entire facet does not polish the same . The entire stone seems to have faint lines showing a geometric design within the stone.

    The picture does not show a close enough view to get a good perspective. If you are at 1200 have you cut away enough material to remove the stress cracks from the rough cutting?

    Hi Rick ! Thanks for responding . If you tap on the picture it should become larger and easy to see what I’m talking about. It’s really strange , I’ve cut the pavilion 3 times and does not appear to be a stress crack. I’m beginning to think it’s a manufacturing error or at least something that happened during the process of manufacturing.
    I’ve checked all of my batch of cv and have found the same situation on most of the pieces.

    Not all man made stones are perfect. You can have impurities and inclusions from the manufacturing process. If you buy without being able to inspect the piece you take your chances. I hope you didn’t over pay for that batch.

    So after cutting the pavilon you have facets showing inside the stone like internally?
