Re: huge slightly yellow orthoclase cut stone
After reading your post I couldn't help wonder about the weight in carats.
You said it was near 450 carats and that now it is 190 finished. What happened to all the rest of the carats? You really don't have to answer this, but I'm just wondering about all the scraps. Seems like a stone that large could have had a lot of material removed (not wasted) simply by sawing away some of the excess. If you do have some pieces left over let me know. I would be interested in a small piece.
