Addition # 3 - This design works well with any Sapphire, in the light to medium dark range, 1/2-8cts. It has a lot of sparkle and is easy to cut. This is mainly for man-made material, but it will certainly work in real Sapphire if you are lucky and have a piece large enough. Cut in refractive indexes 1.73 to 2.14 (85.4%) with no changes.
