Torque Square (BEAD26.JRG)

Angles for R.I. = 1.54
32 facets
4-fold symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.000
H/W = 2.147
Vol./W^3 = 0.906

 

 

Addition # 14 – NOTE: A temporary girdle can be cut using the P1 settings. This is ideal for bi-colored or long crystals. I like it in about any material. Tables can be cut on the ends. If the girdle is left on the bead it can easily
be set and makes a very interesting looking stone.
