    Greetings friends!

    Two new Soaring Hearts ... a 7.8mm 1.83ct (equiv) G VS1 and a 1.24ct 7mm E VS2

    AMORA183GVS1

    AMORA124EVS2

    So as I have em here in the lab thought I'd run under our new 360 video which I thought was cool in the sense that it shows us some of the gemological features of the Amora soaring hearts as well as the careful planning of the cutting of it too and other neat things. :)

    When the Soaring Hearts Eternity are being cut, the cutters align the Amora gem crystals in such a way that they behave singly refractive (like a diamond) in the face up view. You can see this when you have the Amora facing straight at you. When the gem rotates away from the perpendicular axis you can see the double refraction kick in. You can observe this by noting how the facets junctions appear to be doubled when you peer into the gemstone.

    You can also clearly see the faceted girdle on the Amora as well. :)

    Here's the link to the 360 video.

    That 360 video is really cool, love seeing the face up going from what appears as singly refractive to the actual double refraction!

    This makes me all the more excited for the AVC. I know the same meticulous cutting will be used to make a knock out gem.
    I am trying so hard to be patient!

    That IS a neat way to observe it! In general, testing whether gems are singly or double refractive is done with an instrument called a polariscope. Hmm... just gave me an idea for a new vid. ;)

    Haha... yes hard for me too. I've also introduced Less to a new modification to the AVC file for further optimization. Once I get word that they'll begin the cutting I'll release this new information. ;)

    I cant wait! Can you tell me what the waitlist on your end looks like for the AVC? I've been holding off on putting down the deposit on your site just because I simply didn'tknow what kind of timeline we were looking at and I really wanted time to have something designed by my 10th anniversary late summer. I don't know know if I should go ahead and do it so I can get my hands on an early one if this list isn't long or if I should keep waiting in case it gets pushed back further.
