This emerald cut does have a few marks on the pavilion. It has a nice cut, bright excellent polish and an average color. The open ends make for a nice flash in the ends and an open medium toned gemstone.
Rough that requires a long ratio emerald cut is not #1 on my hit parade. They take effort to keep their long narrow facets square even during the polishing process. Being common does not help my enthusiasm either. The biggest challenge with their cutting, outside of square facets, is getting rid of any the radial flaws. They are not only unsightly, especially in an emerald cut, but a threat to the integrity of the gemstone. I see a few tiny parallel marks at one end of this emerald cut that could be the residual of some radial flaws. They are so small that I don’t think they detract from the beauty of the gemstone, but I wish they weren’t there. The stone has bright open ends, a chip free keel and a polish that is so bright that it kind of looks like the stone is backed in foil. It weighs a nice 3.83 carats.
