Angles for R.I. = 1.54
96 facets + 8 facets on girdle = 104
8-fold, mirror-image symmetry
L/W = 1.000
P/W = 0.321 C/W = 0.321
H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.663
P/H = 0.485 C/H = 0.485
Vol./W^3 = 0.283
Addition # 14 - This is good cut in faceting material or opaque color. I designed this for good color silky rose Quartz but it is nice in about any material. It is easy to cut.
