The surface cut of a Gem, Glass or Crystal Bead.
a flat, polished surface cut into a stone or bead.
Plane, polished surface of a diamond.
The small, plane surfaces on a piece of crystal. The quality of the cut forming the facet, as well as the angle and arrangement of the facet, are important to the reflection of light.
The various smooth surface areas of a diamond set up and positioned at different angles, allowing light to enter the stone and reflect back to your eye. A round brilliant diamond has a total of 58 facets.
one of the polished surfaces on a cut diamond.
A flat, platelike surface that acts as part of a joint; as seen in the vertebrae of the spine and in the subtalar joint of the ankle. Each vertebra has two superior and two inferior facets.
One triangular element used to approximate the surface of a model. A facet is defined as three nodes and an outward normal. It takes thousands of triangles to define a complex model. The facet data is kept in an STL file.
Flat, polished surface on a cut gemstone.
the level or concave surface formed when the side or top of a paperweight is shaped with a flat or rounded grinding wheel.

A plane, polished surface of the diamond.
The polished surface/plane on a diamond or gemstone.
One of the small, cut and polished planes that is placed on a gemstone to increase brilliancy and beauty. It can also occur naturally as approximately placed planes in the top of a gemstone crystal. This is normal crystal growth.
Small, smooth flat surfaces on a hard body, as on a bone, especially where it articulates with another bone. Articular facets of a vertebra are covered with hyaline cartilage.
The cut and polished part of a gemstone.
The smooth, flat faces on the surface of a diamond. They allow light to both enter a diamond and reflect off its surface at different angles, creating the wonderful play of color and light for which diamonds are famous. The table below shows all the facets on a round brilliant cut diamond. A round brilliant has 58 facets (or 57 if there is no culet).
A small, smooth-surfaced end of a bony projection (articular process) that functions as part of a joint.
A flat surface, which is polished onto a gemstone.
A smooth polished face surface on a cut gemstone.
The flat polished surfaces on a diamond. A round brilliant diamond has 58 facets.
Any flat polished surface of a diamond or gemstone. This style of cutting gives the stone many small faces at varying angles to one another. The placement, angle and shape of each facet are carefully planned and executed to show the stone's inherent beauty, fire, color, and brilliance to the fullest advantage.
A flat polished surface or plane on a diamond or gemstone.
The cut and polished portion of a gemstone.
A polished surface; a small plane which is cut into a surface and enhances its reflection of light.
A facet is one of the flat surfaces of a cut stone or glass.
The many small cuts on a gemstone that are polished to increase sparkle, shine and brilliancy.
The flat, polished surfaces on the diamond. All Diamond Ideals diamonds have 57 facets.
one of the posterior (at the back) joints of the spine. These joints are also called zygoapophyseal or Z joints. See facet joint injection.
The smooth, flat, polished surfaces on a diamond, allowing light to enter and reflect off at different angles.
A plane (flat) polished surface on a gemstone.
A flat section ground onto the side of a bead. Beads can have one or more facets.
These are the polished surfaces of a diamond. The way that light moves through a diamond and interacts with the facets give a diamond its fire and sparkle.
The small plane surfaces on the diamond. The placement and polish of the facets affects the brilliance of the diamond.
The flat polished surfaces on a diamond. Brilliant cuts have 58 triangular facets and therefore "sparkle" more than emerald cuts, which have far fewer facets and therefore have a more "glassy, elegant" look.
A posterior structure of a vertebra which articulates with a facet of an adjacent vertebra to form a facet joint that allows motion in the spinal column. Each vertebra has two superior and two inferior facets.
Facets are the small angles and cuts of a polished diamond or stone. A standard brilliant cut round diamond has 58 facets. These polished, flat surfaces enhance the reflection of light and are a major determining factor in the diamond's ability to sparkle or reflect light.
Facets are the small flat surfaces of a polished diamond or gemstone. These polished, flat planes are a major determining factor in enhancing the diamond's ability to sparkle or reflect light.
small cut, as on precious stone.

A plane, polished surface on a diamond or other gemstone.
MEDIAL: A bony prominence on the vertebral arch which forms a joint with similar projection on the upper or lower aspect of an adjacent vertebra.
A facet is one of the hexagonal units of the compound eye - the surface of a single ommatidium.
Facets are flat faces on geometric shapes. The organization of naturally occurring facets was key to early developments in crystallography, since they reflect the underlying symmetry of the crystal structure. Gemstones commonly have facets cut into them in order to improve their appearance.
