Description
Lesson 8 teaches the last concept of this unit, cutting a staggered barion (G1 - P4). As opposed to a geometric barion, a staggered barion chain-cuts the girdle and barion facets, and is usually used in ovals or cushions. This lesson also teaches cutting codependent facets/meets (C9), a facet that hits two meets at once. Lesson rules: cut in blue topaz, with no size restrictions
