If the shape of a diamond is such that it cannot be- readily
reduced to one of the usual forms, the rough stone may be di
vided into a number of smaller gems by the system known in the
diamond- trade as "the natural cleavage." In this operation the
diamond is cemented to a wooden holder and a steel blade is ap
plied at the direction wanted and a sharp blow upon the back of the
blade' is sufficient to do cleaving.
