Thanks, Mark! I found that the faceting is addictive. I had to make this up as I went along, as I was following the 6 sides of the crystal (which weren't perfect) and reduce and increase the facets gradually. Also the index I had was for things divisible by 8, not 6, so I had to fudge a little.

It's amazing to me that it looks as good as it does since I wasn't following any pattern, didn't have the right index, and had something lopsided to work with. Next time I'll true the crystal to begin with, then carve and facet. I always seem to do things the hard way.
