Bobbee  I got confused on "which ends" . Are you and JP saying the dimensions below are near correct for the crystal in X and Y (that they are near equidistance)?

Geometry is not a strong subject for me, but I think it has something to do with bringing the curve of the sides into it making it look longer, but by bisecting like in your pic above it seems squarer.

Or I should have possibly been held back in school, maybe!

I know it potentially makes more "work" for us, but DarHin had noted the utility of crystal measurements including the "narrower" ends of the crystal too- in this instance the distance in X at the top/bottom.  ...and it's not like we all have the time or desire to do so in an immense Bulova world of possibilities...
