Thanks to corundum's durability and clarity, this remarkable mineral can be fashioned into virtually any shape. Some more unique cuts include:
Shield - Squared shape with convex sides
Hexagon - Six-sided symmetrical cut
Ball or Sphere - Multifaceted round shape
Briolette - Teardrop or drop cut with facets
Cabochon - Rounded unfaceted top, flat base
Rose - Domed top, flat or pointed base
Whatever inspired shape a jewelry designer dreams up, corundum's brilliance and color make it shine. The facets maximize light reflection and dispersion. Cuts with straight lines and points complement corundum’s crystalline structure. For one-of-a-kind adornments, corundum takes any form to the highest level of beauty.
