80.4% Light Return
Angles for R.I. = 1.54
43 facets + 6 facets on girdle = 49
6-fold, mirror-image symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.155 T/W = 0.361 T/L = 0.313
P/W = 0.450 C/W = 0.197
H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.667
P/H = 0.674 C/H = 0.296
Vol./W^3 = 0.274

Addition # 6 – This is a neat design and it cuts fast. I like it in about any material. This design can be cut in refractive indexes 1.54 to 1.93 (87.9%) with no changes. It is really a “Money Cut” and I like it for earrings…
