Addition # 6 - This one is really nice, and fairly fast to cut once you get used to the 120 index gear. I like it in about any material. Cut in refractive indexes 1.54 t0 1.93 (85.1%)with no changes. The cutting order on the crown can be a different order, leave yourself some extra room when cutting the crown, a re-cut to line things up is normal.
