I try not to cut emerald cuts from included material because the cut makes any inclusions that lye under the table very obvious. But when you have a rare color like yellow and the rough is shaped to cut an emerald cut, you do what you have to do. Position the flaws so they are perpendicular to the table if possible and away from the table, then cut for yield. This honey dipped yellow is a real piece of eye candy. Its color and tone level precluded hiding any flaws, but the excitement of having such a great color and tone value in a glistening gem overwhelms the defects. (I like yellow in tourmaline)The emerald cut weighs 1.91 carats.
