Chinese Lantern (BEAD22.JRG)
By Jeff R. Graham
Copyright 2007
Angles for R.I. = 1.54
84 facets
6-fold symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.155
P/W = 0.625 C/W = 0.625
H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 1.270
P/H = 0.492 C/H = 0.492
Vol./W^3 = 0.548

Addition # 14 – NOTE: A temporary girdle can be cut using the P1 settings. This works well for a large bead and I like it in light saturated material.
