I appreciate you put the effort in, now here is a thought I don't usually care for but that could help. Unless you're printing big, why not drop down to 0.25x magnification, get the extra depth and settle for a lower resolution image? Either that or focus stack.

Hi, Mike!

Thanks very much for looking and for your suggestion!

The post was more about the difficulty of *lighting* the gem; I was satisfied with the DOF, and I was going for some really fine detail, so I was looking for that kind of resolution - and these are crops! I was prepared to do some focus stacking (camera was on a macro rail) but didn't saw the need for it after all.

But I'll keep your advice in mind for the next time I want some extra DOF and am willing to loose some resolution.

Phil
