A classic bit of gemological fun, these ‘reflector’ pieces are cut so that an inclusion goes directly from the middle of the table down to the culet, creating the look of it then being reflected pinwheel-style around the interior of the stone. We see black Tourmaline crystals most often, so this use of a thin grouping of Rutile needles is rather scarcer.
