Rendering simulating this design cut in smoky quartz

This is another design for pieces of rough calling for a "short" navette shape. It has not been test-cut, but ray-tracing says it should perform well in any material, from quartz RI to CZ. At higher RI's the "hole" typical of many apex designs will disappear. In quartz it is very little. The rendering on the right shows the theoretical performance in quartz, that is the most troublesome (lowest RI) material considered. Then the higher the RI, the better.

If you cut anything with this design please consider posting a pic and/or comment in this page. A stone cut in the real life tells much more!
