A deeper richer golden yellow oval that demands respect.#260

Darker medium toned golden roval.  #260 This oval appears to be eye clean and has fine crystal. It has a rich, darker, medium tone level, but is not dominated by brown. It weighs 1.07 carats.

This golden oval is a darker breed of golden yellow, but it is still very open with its medium tone level.  It is not dominated by drown and I would still  not call it a dravite, but I am sure that it is done.  It appears to be eye clean and has fine crystal.  It weighs 1.07 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.
