L/W = 1.033 T/W = 0.457 T/L = 0.443
P/W = 0.447 C/W = 0.164
H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.631
P/H = 0.708 C/H = 0.260
Vol./W^3 = 0.222

Addition # 7 – This is actually easier than it looks. The pavilion is center point and the girdle cuts to meet it. I like this for medium saturated material and it make nice sets. It works well in Peridot, Garnet and Spinel and is similar to my “Hunter” design (they match up nicely).
