L/W = 1.330 T/W = 0.748 T/L = 0.563
P/W = 0.435 C/W = 0.177
H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.632
P /H = 0.688 C/H = 0.280
Vol./W^3 = 0.302

Addition # 3 – This also works in Peridot, Spinel, Garnet, & Sapphire. It cuts well and is pretty standard. It has nice light return for an oval and works in most material. Cut in light to medium material, 1-24cts.
