Gig #2 (BEAD20.JRG)
By Jeff R. Graham
Copyright 2007
Angles for R.I. = 1.54
60 facets
6-fold symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.155
H/W = 1.001
Vol./W^3 = 0.356

 

Addition # 14 – NOTE: A temporary girdle can be cut using the P1 settings. I usually flatten the points or counter sink a small spacer bead on the ends to protect the bead. This works well in about any material.
