85.2% Light Return
Angles for R.I. = 1.54
65 facets + 16 facets on girdle = 81
8-fold symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.000 T/W = 0.224 T/L = 0.224 P/W = 0.426
C/W = 0.234 H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.680 P/H = 0.627 C/H = 0.344 Vol./W^3 = 0.214




Addition # 10 – Cut in refractive indexes 1.54 to 1.93 with no changes. This is not hard to cut and is quite nice in light to medium saturated materials. This makes great earrings and I tend to prefer it cut in 10mm and larger sizes.
