82% Light Return
Angles for R.I. = 1.54
44 facets + 4 facets on girdle = 48
4-fold, mirror-image symmetry
96 index L/W = 1.000 P/W = 0.435 C/W = 0.264
H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.719 P/H = 0.605 C/H = 0.368
Vol./W^3 = 0.305

Addition # 10 – Cut in refractive indexes 1.54 to 2.14 with no changes. This is great for light to medium colored material and quite pretty. This is not hard to cut. A table can be cut on a large stone.
