==Barion Heart-Transplant - Shifter55==

This was made to address some of the issues with my Arrow Heart design, mostly with ease and speed of cutting.
The somewhat complex barion facets help avoid pure 3-way symmetry in the pavilion, and ensure that said facets touch the mains without affecting the reflection pattern.
To get a good reflection of the mains in the crown I had to increase the angles, and bump the Refractive Index up to 1.6, but it is optimised for Spinel and Sapphire RIs.
Overall it should be a significantly easier heart to cut, and the mains tiers can be replaced with most 6-way symmetry designs due to the equal distance from the barion tier.
If you want a variant that is designed for lower RIs, try [[Barion_Heart_-_Transplant_Split_Mains|the Split Mains variant.]]
If you cut this, please consider posting an image here or messaging me on the forum with a picture of the cut stone.
