Each facet is cut and later polished in a reproductible fashion using a pre-defined index adjustment, cutting angle and hand piece height. No previous knowledge or training is needed, even kids can achieve nice results under the supervision of an adult. Read-to-use cutting designs can be downloaded from the internet e.g. www.gemologyproject.com or developed with a software e.g. www.gemcad.com (ca.100€).
