Glorious (BEAD28.JRG)

Copyright 2007
Angles for R.I. = 1.54
176 facets
16-fold, mirror-image symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.000
H/W = 1.174
Vol./W^3 = 0.437

Addition # 14 – NOTE: A temporary girdle can be cut using the P1 settings. This is very nice in a medium to large size stone and I prefer lightly saturated material. The P2,C2 are staggered and only reach the girdle at the corners.
