    Hello, are 36/40.8 angles bad? What affect will the steep crown coupled with the 40.8 pav angle have on this stone if any?

    Thank you!

    its not optimum and the stone will probably be small for its ct weight, especially if the table is smallish.

    Here are the rest of the specs on this rb stone - are the dimensions ok for its carat weight or do you think it will it appear small? Thank you. I posted the specs in another thread and someone mentioned the 36 deg crown was not good. I assumed it would affect the sparkle somehow?

    Total depth.........62.0%
    Table size...........57%
    Crown angle........36.0 deg.
    Crown height.......15.5%
    Pavilion angle......40.8 deg.
    Pavilion depth .....43.0%
    Star length..........50%
    Lower half...........80%
    Girdle................Med. to slightly thick, faceted (3.5%)
