A cool touch of blue in a green round.#181

In natural light, this has a touch of blue in the green round.  #181 This standard round brilliant is a coo,l sophisticated green that tries a spring look in my yellowish light, but usually has a touch of blue in its medium toned, eye clean body. It weighs 2.25 carats.

This is not a happy spring kind of green standard round brilliant.  This medium toned green does try to get up in the yellowish light, but a touch of blue keeps it more sophisticated.  It appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal.  It weighs 2.25 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.
