L/W = 1.065 T/W = 0.586 T/L = 0.550 P/W = 0.495
C/W = 0.193 H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.709 P/H = 0.699 C/H = 0.273 Vol./W^3 = 0.273

Addition # 11 – Cut in refractive indexes 1.54 to 2.14 with no changes. This is designed for light to medium colored rough and works well in Beryl. Note: The corners are variable and basically cut them in to match the diagram. This is not hard to cut, but be careful when cutting the crown to make the steps accurate.
