Stones with a prime number symmetry above 5 (7, 11, 13, 17...) are seen less commonly than those with even numbered symmetry. It requires a special index equally divisible by 11 (such as a 77) to cut a perfectly symmetrical 7 or 11 sided stone. This 11 sided cut is designed for the more common 96 index. It is easy to cut with all of the facets around the same course cut at the same angle. Note the meet point 'fudging' on facets close to the girdle around index 13, 48 and 83.
