that pavilion is what I call a "flat top" as it looks like the flight deck of an air craft carrier. A recut on that type of stone is a real crap shoot, because of all the material on the side you have to chop off to bring it to symmetry. I cut a stone with that symmetry that started at 2.51 and ended up at 1.5 at the end of the day. That configuration is not a good option for recutting.
