A darker drifting orange pink droplet of color

Darker orange pink droplet of color. This standard round brilliant's darker tone makes its color flash driven. It appears to be eye clean and weighs .77 carats.

Sometimes the back of the boxes I keep the individual gemstones in, is wrong when it comes to color.  I will have to bring it up to management’s attention.  I will also check this stone’s color again tonight.  This droplet’s color is a pink orange and rather stable for this color range.  It does shift some, but nearly as much as some others.  This may be do to its rich tone level, that make its color flash driven.  It appears to eye clean and weighs .77 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.
