A blue sliding into greener blue hue in a great emerald cut. Namibia#398

Excellent completely open blue to blue green emerald cut Namibia.  #398 This is a beautiful gemstone. Its medium rich toned blue does slide into blue green in yellowish light, but is still a blue. It is not dichroic at all and very flashy for an emerald cut. It weighs a nice 3.86 carats.

This medium toned blue emerald cut takes on a quite distinct greenish cast in yellowish light, but still stays on the bluer side of green.  It is completely with dichroism and its low ratio between its length and its width produces quite a flashy gemstone for an emerald cut.  Its deeper cut with four rows of facets on the back shows off a completely eye clean body with great crystal.  An all around excellent gemstone that weighs 3.86 carats of power.


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.
