Angles for R.I. = 1.54
96 facets + 8 facets on girdle = 104
8-fold symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.000
P/W = 0.484 C/W = 0.484
H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.988
P/H = 0.490 C/H = 0.490
Vol./W^3 = 0.403

Addition # 14 – This cuts easily and is nice in about any material. A table can be cut at P6, C6, if desired. I normally just use a round ball burr and cut the ends in a little so that a round bead spacer will snug in and protect the ends.
