Item Information

Dimensions (mm) 27.1 x 27.1 x 23.8mm
Weight (carats) 85.3 carats
No Treatment

This original design was inspired by the Cassini spacecraft photos of the North Pole of Saturn (see photo) that shows a large hexagon with huge storms raging inside. This pattern has a hexagon within the round design on both the pavilion and crown, staggering them such that a double hexagon is seen when viewing through the table. Then 24-ray stars are cut within the hexagons on both pavilion and crown. This stone is very nice for collectors and comes with the original design pattern in all details (cutting angles and index settings used).
