86.2% Light Return
Angles for R.I. = 1.54
57 facets + 8 facets on girdle = 65
8-fold symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.000 T/W = 0.219 T/L = 0.219 P/W = 0.435
C/W = 0.294 H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.749 P/H = 0.580 C/H = 0.393 Vol./W^3 = 0.273

Addition # 13 – This is for lightly saturated rough and is very nice. It looks like a rose as the flower opens it’s petals. I worked a long time to get this reflection/effect, it is striking. Cut this in refractive indexes 1.54 to 2.14 with no changes.
