A beautiful blue drifter into blue green round.

A great blue to blue green GEM round This standard round brilliant with a flatter crown is a gem. It blue color drifts a little into green, but that doesn't hold it back. I weighs 2.84 carats. A GEM is an all around excellent gemstone.

I like to call this wonderful standard round brilliant a blue, but it will drift into blue green under common lights in the home.  It has a flatter crown that gives the stone an open look with broad colorful flash.  It has a medium dark toned richness that can really draw you into its eye clean charms.  It is also helped by a fine crystal.  The icing on the cake was when my friend and photographer, Jeff said that it was one of his favorite stones and he has seen them all.  Therefor it has been declared a GEM of a winner and weighs 2.84 carats.


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.
