Additional Information
This stone was custom designed by the author. It is a very simple eight sided bottom with a domed top. The top is frosted and then even spaced facets and a table are cut into the frosted top. Each of the top facets acts like a port showing an 8 sided star. This stone cut from a piece of Oro Verde citrine. Similar designs ca nbe found in one of the Vargas faceting design books (under domed stones).
