A darker average green round#119

Average darker tone green round. #129 This tourmaline represent a common opinion of tourmaline. The round standard brilliant is only moderately alive and the green color is nondescript. It weighs .76 carats

This standard round brilliant is pretty much what people, who have not taken the adventure of color in tourmaline, expect from tourmaline. A darker rather unpretentious, nondescript green.  Having it in a round rather than an emerald cut is a bit different, but not much.  So wake up world and browse the collection and know that this darker toned green, that is eye clean and only moderately alive is not all of tourmaline.  The round weighs .76 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.
