This dichroic gemstone has the classic pie slice shaped areas with alternating yellow green and green, when you look face up at this standard round brilliant. It appears to be eye clean and has a medium dark tone color. It weighs .78 carats.
When I bought the rough for this minor stone, I was just beginning to cut again after a long hiatus, stretching from when I was a kid. When the small pieces of rough arrive they had been sliced down the middle. This made the much more desirable a/b axis ( a nice green) color dominate the rough even though it was unreasonable to try and isolate the c axis in an emerald cut. I think that I asked the dealer why he prepared the rough that way and really got nothing for an answer. I learned why on my own before long.
