Additional Information
A native cut stone with "creative" shape. It has a step cut bottom with a nicely cut top (not step cut). The stone has nice color but the last two pavillion facets are below critical angle so the stone suffers from a small "fish-eye" in the center. Because of its dark color, and unusual shape, it is not too noticeable.
