A type of cabochon that, in contrary to the normal cabochon, is polished in a way that the top of the stone is really sticking out in a (smooth) point. The naming of such polishing refers to a sugarloaf in its traditional form. Namely a tall gently-tapering cylinder with a conical top, in which refined sugar was exported from the Caribbean and eastern Brazil from the 17th to 19th centuries.
