What's Crushed Ice cut?

Below is a comparison between a brilliant oval moissanite (left) and a crushed ice oval moissanite (right).

There are two main cutting styles for moissanite stones, brilliant faceted and crushed ice. A brilliant cut stone will reflect the most amount of light and therefore, sparkle the most. Light goes into the crown of the stone, reflects a couple times (off the pavillion facets), and comes back out through the crown. This is the most efficient way for light to travel, and it results in lots of light return, while displaying well-defined pavillion facets. When you look down at a brilliant oval moissanite, you see all the splinters radiating out from the center of the stone (see picture below).
In a crushed ice stone, light going into the crown will often bounce all over the place. Sometimes it will reflect three times inside the stone, sometimes it will exit the pavillion instead of the crown. The reason for this is that there are more facets in the pavillion of crushed ice stone, and each pavillion facet has a different angle to it. This is not as efficient as the brilliant because it shoots light in many different directions. Also, the more times light bounces inside the stone, the higher the chance it will exit the pavillion, which means less light return. This mishmash of scrambled light rays is the reason why looking at a crushed ice stone is almost like trying to look through a glass of mohito.
You can see how the brilliant has well defined facets, while the crushed ice facets look all broken up and somewhat hazy. Also, the center of the crushed ice has a horizontal dark band running across it. This is called the bowtie effect and is more characteristic of elongated stones such as ovals, pears, marquises and elongated cushions. The bowtie is where more of the light leakage is concentrated.
If crushed ice stones seem so inferior, what’s the appeal? It boils down to personal preference. Some people don’t like the splintered look of a brilliant stone and prefer the broken up look of the crushed ice. Some people don’t want too much sparkle and fire, and the crushed ice reduces both. Another reason is because most oval diamonds are cut in a way that gives it a crushed ice appearance. In the diamond world, people don’t normally use the term crushed ice when describing ovals; brilliant cut oval diamonds look like crushed ice already. In short, a crushed ice oval moissanite more closely resembles a brilliant cut oval diamond, the most common type of oval diamond.
