Does anyone have "Cleopatra's Eye" facet design?
« on: February 20, 2018, 02:56:26 PM »
Hi does anyone have the design for "CLEOPATRA'S EYE" I believe it's by Bob Keller. I should have downloaded the design from Bobsrockshop while the website was up. Now it's down again, there's no way of getting it. I did manage to try out the PHARAOH'S EYE though..... Thanks Cliff

The internet archive's "wayback machine" doesn't have bandwidth issues.  ;D

Thanks for that Rej, it's a site I used regularly up until it disappeared. I'll save that link now.

Just finished the pavilion but have heard C1 on crown may be off about 4 deg. Cliff did you get yours done? Crown is much harder I've heard. There's a video on gemology forum with an Aussie cutting it.

I have a copy of the design and have just cut it in Citrine, tricky, but came up well.

Watched the Vintagetimes video on Youtube, C1 ended up at the wrong meet point, should meet the second facet line in from the point. Barion 1 covers 2 x P1 facets, C1 has to do the same with the C6 series. At 53.95 degrees C1 works fine, the trick I found when cutting the crown is to cut C1 then cut the 24 x C6 facets before cutting in C2-C5, then everything should line up nicely. Anyway that's the way I did it.

Thanks for the tips on cutting the Cleopatra's Eye, might have another go in the next few months. I tried once a while back, the pavilion went in just fine, but I chickened out on the crown, and ended up doing a 'custom' crown.
On a related topic, has anyone got an open-source faceting design they're willing to share for an updated Pharaoh's Eye type of design (for 96 Index) and even better would work for RI = 1.54?
Thanks,
RC

Yes, the design I cut is 1.54 and 96 index.

No idea how I add a PDF to this forum, so if someone can provide the 'how to' I'll supply the diagrams.

The cut has been used for a competition some years ago, so should be ok to share.

With the crown being harder to cut maybe it should be cut first. Machine aliment and transfer makes the crown a bitch. I'm trying to cut C6 and it is. lol

That sounds great. There is a Downloads section on the Forum, but it looks to be for more formal stuff. If you can convert the pdf to an image file, then it could be placed in the Gallery?
If you are not sure how to convert the diagram PM me and I can do it,
thanks,
RC.

If you get through C6 unscathed, looks like C7 could end it all.

I Just realised the obvious, there is an Attachment and other options section at the bottom of the Post Reply dialog where it is a piece of cake to add pdf attachments to any post.

I agree on cutting the C6 facets after C1. Set the depth on indexes 22, 26, 70, 74 then cut the remain facets to same depth. It is important to have the angles the same on these facets to make tiers C7 & C8 easy to cut.  Can adjust C2, C3, C4 & C5 if needed.I think you cut it the right way. :)

I think the attachments folder is not very large so gets filled up and items deleted. I'm not sure if you can upload pdf's into the gallery(worth a try). You could convert the pdf into a jpeg.
