Angles for R.I. = 1.54
34 facets + 8 facets on girdle = 42
4-fold, mirror-image symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.000 T/W = 0.114 T/L = 0.114
P/W = 0.932 C/W = 0.919
H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 1.871
P/H = 0.498 C/H = 0.491
Vol./W^3 = 0.637

Addition # 14 – This is simple to cut and works well in about any material. I like it in multi-colored material because it is long enough to show the colors well. This is for long thin rough.
