Enmesh (MIR68.JRG)

93.1% Light Return
Angles for R.I. = 1.54
40 facets + 8 facets on girdle = 48
4-fold, mirror-image symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.000 P/W = 0.412 C/W = 0.196
H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.628 P/H = 0.655 C/H = 0.313
Vol./W^3 = 0.191

Addition # 10 – Cut in refractive indexes 1.54 to 2.14 with no changes. This is fast, fun, and neat to cut. It has very nice Mirage patterns in the reflection. I like it in about any material. It works well in medium colored stones.
