A fine quality Star stone is more likely to be smaller in size. This is because color quality and star effect usually get hampered with the increase in size. Therefore, Star stones in bigger sizes are rarely available. The stones are densely packed with microscopic rutile inclusions which make them appear translucent to opaque. Opaque gems are mostly cut in cabochon (non-faceted, polished gemstone) to obtain a perfect star effect on the smooth and polished upper surface. As per the gem cutters, a well-shaped dome exhibits a bright and clear star effect and therefore demands a good market value.
