These arent numbers we normally suggest.

Can you provide links to the stones?

Edit...

No on the first one...its got issues.

Do you have a link to the second one? Can you get an idealscope image for it?

I think that both would work (in terms of the angles) but both are very different 'flavours' - the first being a 60/60 (favouring white light return over coloured fire) and the second being a small table / high crown (vice versa).
