    In the 100 direction, default effective masses are: 0.19 0.19 0.98
    0.19 0.98 0.19
    0.98 0.19 0.19

    In the 110 direction, default effective masses are: 0.19 0.19 0.98
    0.32 0.19 0.59
    0.32 0.59 0.19

    The vally degeneracy is 2 for both the cases. You can manually change the effective masses in the Material tab.
