BluZerk is another design inspired by some unusually shaped rough, in this case, a small (3 carat) piece of Cambodian Blue Zircon that I picked up for about 4 US dollars. Investing the time to come up with a new design for this material raises the obvious question whether I am berserk. Nope, I am BluZerk.

BluZerk is a straightforward design, and is appropriate to all skill levels.

At right is a 1.03 carat, 5x6 mm BluZerk cut from internally flawless Cambodian Blue Zircon.
