Radiant Barion Pear (B37.JRG)
By Jeff R. Graham
84% Light Return
Angles for R.I. = 1.54
64 facets + 16 facets on girdle = 80
1-fold, mirror-image symmetry
L/W = 1.436 T/W = 0.878 T/L = 0.611
P/W = 0.608 C/W = 0.186
H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.814
P/H = 0.747 C/H = 0.228
Vol./W^3 = 0.424
Addition # 5 - This works in R.I. 1.54 to 1.76 (86.6%) with no changes. This design is a lot of work to cut and not for a new cutter. Preform L/W=1.436 is needed to make this work. Other than a lot of work it is not especially hard. I designed this for light materials and large sized stones.
