I've cut my second Gemstone. This time it's a very light citrine, with an interesting colour shift. Because its not quite clear, it has a appealing look about it. It weighs 7.5 CT, which is smaller than my previous stone. I did make a couple of mistakes, but did manage to rectify a slight overcut. Also, I got lucky and bought a faceting machine for a bargain. A "FACET STAR" which was made in Melbourne. It came complete with a huge array of dops, brand new discs and index wheels. I just replaced a new belt this morning. So it's all set to go. Thanks to Benkenobi for sharing some useful information. Today I used Paint stripper to remove the epoxy off the stone after final completion, and I have to say it did a great job. So that has solved a mystery that I have pondered for a while. Many stones have shattered on final removal from heating the glue off.
