Scissor-cut gemstones are given triangular facets that are shaped like opposing blades. These facets appear like the blades of scissors, hence the name, 'scissor cut'. Scissor-cut gemstones reflect more light than ordinary step cuts, which maximize a gemstone's color. This means that scissor-cut gems have more sparkle than a basic baguette or square gem. Dark and opaque gemstones are often given a scissor cut to bring out the sparkle of the gem.

Many beautiful gems on the site. Love that you are actually shipped the gem that is shown in the photos. Also cool that they give a write up of each gem detailing hardness, characteristics, and best uses for mounting. Great site! Looking forward to seeing these gems in person.
