I attempt to accurately represent and describe cut stones and rough
as to appearance, size, origin and fully disclose any known
treatments in its description. Because you view the images on a
different monitor with different settings, color is particularly fickle
to represent, but I do my best.

Angles are for R.I = 1.54
49 Facets  +  16 Girdle Facets  =  65  Total Facets
8-fold radial symmetry
96  Index
L/W = 1.000  T/W = 0.379  U/W = 0.260  P/W = 0.443  C/W = 0.146
Volume/W e3  =  0.199
Cutting Remarks  -  This is a very bright design, so it would probably wash out a stone with pale coloring.  It's a very
easy design to cut without low angles to worry about. These angles work without changes from R.I. of 1.54 to 2.17.
