Testing the 300 & kenko tube combo

A round brilliant diamond is a diamond cut and polished with 58 facets (sides). Its called a brilliant because, well, its brilliant. The cut is suppposed to maximize the light return through the top of the diamond.

This round brilliant is 0.02 carats.
Or, size-wise its approx. 0.0011364 cubic centimetres.
I believe this is the smallest size that can be sucessfully cut.
How small is it really?
Well, the average golf ball is 40.633 cubic centimetres.
So, for a pile matching the size of a golf ball, you would need around 35,756 of these little brilliants.
That's how small.
