Molded Gem Glass SRB Approximate Proportions
These glass gemstones are cast in molds using the SRB (Standard Round Brilliant) pattern. The above diagram illustrates their approximate proportions for faceters interested in them as preforms for recutting. A Spinning Wheel 40 and a Soda Bar 19 recut from these glass gemstones won the synthetic division of the 2008 and 2009 OPLC Faceters Hobnob Most Beautiful Gemstone Competitions respectively.

Please Note: We are discontinuing selling these glass gemstones due to the manufacturer changing their production process to a colored film deposited over clear glass instead of coloring the glass through-and-through. The new film-colored gemstones are more easily marred, less colorfast, and are of course unsuitable as a source of colored glass for recutting. Our remaining inventory is old stock dyed glass, not film covered. When these are gone, they're gone...
