4-fold, mirror-image symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.000 T/W = 0.427
T/L = 0.427 P/W = 0.474 C/W = 0.177
H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.671
P/H = 0.707 C/H = 0.264
Vol./W^3 = 0.238

Addition # 8 – Cut in refractive indexes 1.54 to 2.14 with no changes. This is nice and fairly fast to cut. It works well in light to medium saturated material. This is great in light colored Garnets like Mali.
