Glorious: Faceting Design Diagram
Successful tips and guide on Faceting Designs. A Faceting Design Diagram by Jeff R. Graham that presents various cuts, this one is called "Glorious".
By Jeff R. Graham
Angles for R.I. = 1.54
16-fold, mirror-image symmetry
L/W = 1.000
H/W = 1.174
Vol./W^3 = 0.437
Addition # 14 - NOTE: A temporary girdle can be cut using the P1 settings. This is very nice in a medium to large size stone and I prefer lightly saturated material. The P2,C2 are staggered and only reach the girdle at the corners.
