RE: interesting old cut article
I found this interesting
"old stones in mountings face one or two color grades whiter than they actually are. Because of their open culet, color is not trapped in the stone.”
I didn't know that was what an open culet did!

Hm, interesting. The idea of the open culet minimizing color and helping old cuts face up white is new to me, too. I have heard dealers argue that it's the bruted girdle, though ....
