Diag-nal 1.50 - Reflector (MC14.JRG)
By Jeff R. Graham
89.4% Light Return
Angles for R.I. = 1.54
15 facets + 4 facets on girdle = 19
L/W = 1.500 T/W = 0.856 T/L = 0.571
P/W = 0.500 C/W = 0.338
H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.858
P/H = 0.582 C/H = 0.39
Vol./W^3 = 0.767
Addition # 4 - This is another neat flash, the shapes are diamonds. It is easy and fast to cut and makes a nice color flash stone. I like it in a larger size (6x9mm and up) and about any color. Works well in Tourmaline and Topaz... Cut this in R.I. 1.54 to 1.76 without changes.
