Angles for R.I. = 1.54
50 facets + 8 facets on girdle = 58
2-fold, mirror-image symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.000 T/W = 0.211 T/L = 0.211
P/W = 0.339 C/W = 0.339
H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.698
P/H = 0.486 C/H = 0.486
Vol./W^3 = 0.370

Addition # 14 – Note that the drill hole for this bead can be 96-48 or 24-72. Also, facets at 68 degrees can be cut in on both sides of the drill hole. When P1(G) is cut measure the width and cut P2(G) to 1/4 of it to make even squares.
