A bit of scatter in a mint green droplet of color

Beautiful mint green with a bit of scatter, droplet of color. This standard round brilliant grabs your eye with a bluer sea foam. It does have a bit of scatter that is hard to see. It is bright and flashy and weighs .80 carats. Droplets of color away for this nautical gemstone.

The standard round brilliant grabs your eye.  At first it looks like a sea foam, but it is really too blue for that honor.  It also doesn’t have waves of the two colors (yellowish green and bluish green) mixing together in the droplet of color.  It does have a bright rich medium tone level and a purity that is only soiled by a bit of scatter that matters little to the beauty of the stone.  It weighs .80 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.
