Checkerboard-cut colored gemstones have diamond-shaped facets, often on the crown of the gemstone. The facets reflect light and increase the scintillation of the stone and surface luster. Some colored gemstones are often given a checkerboard cut, such as black spinel, melanite, black tourmaline, prehnite, smoky quartz, aquamarine, citrine and ametrine. Checkerboard-cut gemstones have several shapes, such as round checkerboard-cut gems, oval checkerboard-cut gems, heart-shaped checkerboard-cut gems and cushion-shaped checkerboard-cut gems.
