Symmetry of table and table edges

Fig 277 Truncated table edgeA good check whether a brilliant is regularly and symmetrically cut results from observing the lines of the table-edges. Their lines should be regular and parallel to one another. Where they do not run in a straight line but are "wavy" a good symmetrical cut is ruled out straight away (Fig, 274-276), for the adjoining facets are also affected.

The table should form a regular octagon with table-edges running together in points. Occasionally one or more blunt table-edges are observed (Fig, 277}.
