A baby pink round with a white feather in its crown.#40

Included, bright flashy baby pink round from Afghanistan  #40 This standard round brilliant has a significant and well defined white non-flashing flaw just off the table. It still has great crystal and is a bright flashy 1.85 carats.

This is baby pink round from Afghanistan that I have produced in quantity from a lot I bought years ago.  It has a nice color, but it is always included.  This 1.85 carat standard round brilliant has a much more distinct and defined flaw than most of its siblings.  The flaw is white and does not flash.  It rides just outside the radius of the table and is vertical to the table.  In other words, its effect on the gemstone has been minimized and the basically clean bright nature of the round shines threw.


About Bruce Fry

I was born in Summit, NJ in 1947 and graduated from Summit High School in 1966. I graduated from the Colorado School of Mines in 1970 and after spending another year in graduate school, I left to see the world of Brazil. After spending some more time discovering myself, I ended up working for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for 32 years as an Air Quality Engineer in the Department of Environmental Protection. I retired in 2007 and took up faceting gemstones again after a long hiatus that reached back to my twenties. I had started cutting cabochons when I was 13 and bought my first faceting machine when I was 15, but ran out of money and time until I retired. My great love in gemology is tourmaline and the collection presented here represents my effort to get as much beauty and variety in the colors of tourmaline as I can. I was particularly lucky in being able to get unheated cuprian tourmaline before copper was discovered in gem grade tourmaline from Mozambique.
