The Crown Scope TM is a tool developed to promote Apparent and (or) Optical Symmetry. Apparent Symmetry (Surface symmetry): It divides the crown facets into four colors, gray, black, pink and green displaying interesting facet alignments in diamonds cut with precision. The Crown Scope is especially useful to distinguish and market new cuts with different facet configurations.
If a standard round stone is cut with precision and does not display Arrows (deep or shallow), it may display Symmetry patterns, like the Ideal Cut below left.
Optical Symmetry (inter facet symmetry): We have viewed 17 new cuts, 13 of which revealed Interesting optical symmetry patterns, some intended by the cutter, some were discoveries: Flowers, Birds, Hearts, Chevrons, geometric compositions, leaves, etc.
Some showed patterns on the Crown, some on the Pavilion and some on both Crown and Pavilion.
