88% Light Return
Angles for R.I. = 1.54
49 facets + 8 facets on girdle = 57
2-fold, mirror-image symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.331 T/W = 0.461 T/L = 0.346
P/W = 0.639 C/W = 0.221
H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.880
P/H = 0.726 C/H = 0.252
Vol./W^3 = 0.497

Addition # 8 – Cut in refractive indexes 1.54 to 2.14 with no changes. I like this in about any material, it is especially nice in medium colored materials.
