Description
Lesson 5 is our first modern-style design, and it uses a triangle, NOT a trillion (there's no cushioning here). This lesson teaches how to use a CAM preform (non-retained CAM facets; X1, C2) to generate a girdle outline, how to cut radial symmetry instead of mirror symmetry, and how to cut an apex crown (C5). Lesson rules: cut in rhodolite garnet, with no size restrictions
