This is a heavily modified version of Alexandre Wolkonsky's "Chevron Rectangle CC" that was made for a piece of rubellite shown in the photo. While that design does have angles listed for 1.10 L/Ws, it could be simplfied and retain performance by just offsetting the indices towards the long ends, similar to some girdle facets on diamonds where weight retention was a concern. This is a trick that can be used on a few designs to alter their L/W ratio slightly while still maintaining the same facet angles, provided they don't have facets on cardinal indices.

If you cut this, please consider posting an image here or messaging me on the forum with a picture of the cut stone.
