121 facets + 12 facets on girdle = 133
12-fold, mirror-image symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.000 T/W = 0.382 T/L = 0.382 P/W = 0.465
C/W = 0.243 H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.728 P/H = 0.639 C/H = 0.334 Vol./W^3 = 0.281

 

Addition # 12 – Cut in refractive indexes 1.67 to 2.14 with no changes. This is fun to cut and is 12 sided which is a little unusual. It works well in any light to medium saturated material. Note: The girdle can be cut first then meet P1 to it to save rough.
