L/W = 1.000 T/W = 0.621 T/L = 0.621 P/W = 0.466
C/W = 0.222 H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.708 P/H = 0.658 C/H = 0.313 Vol./W^3 = 0.291

 

Addition # 11 – This works in refractive indexes 1.54 to 2.14 with no changes. This is designed for watermelon or multi-colored material. Note: The pavilion is a reflector which will help keep colors from mixing.
