A Dichroic Dancing Green Round.

Dichroic green with a dynamic color flash, round This green standard round brilliant deserves a closer look. It is dichroic and dances around yellow to bluer green in a medium toned sea. It weighs 3.38 carats.

This standard round brilliant is a very active gemstone.  It is definitely dichroic and not cut with the table perpendicular to the table.  This works very well here because both colors are of similar color and tone value.  The dynamic gemstone does shift between bluer to yellower depending on the light, but it doesn’t loose its way.  It is still green.  It appears to be eye clean and weighs 3.38 carats.  A rather different green that appreciates a closer look.



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.
