Torque Square (BEAD26.JRG)
By Jeff R. Graham
Angles for R.I. = 1.54
L/W = 1.000
H/W = 2.147
Vol./W^3 = 0.906
Addition # 14 - NOTE: A temporary girdle can be cut using the P1 settings. This is ideal for bi-colored or long crystals. I like it in about any material. Tables can be cut on the ends. If the girdle is left on the bead it can easily
be set and makes a very interesting looking stone.
