Emerald Cut

The Emerald Cut is a rectangular step cut design which means it has horizontal facets which differ in angles of inclination. Although occasionally used for diamonds, it is more often used for colored stones which crystallize in long prismatic shapes which favor from a long rectangular design such as Tourmaline and Beryl, of which the green variety Emerald has been used to name the cut.
