Compass card cut

Designed by  Merrill  O.  Murphy,  a  Lapidarist and gem collector from New Mexico,  the  compass  card  cut  is  normally  applied  to  round shaped gemstones and when viewed from  the table facet (as its name suggests) you see a  traditional  style  compass  card.  For  those  into  sailing or for those looking for direction in life,  this cut is a must have. 

Although I have as yet been unable to bring this cut to you, my team of  lapidaries are working hard at trying to perfect it  and we are hoping to be able to bring it to you in  the near future.
