A different peach to bless a shield cut.#199

Larger, cooler, different peach, shield cut.  #199 This larger shield cut has a couple of spots in one corner that has no effect on its bright,flashy face up look. But its peach color has a different overtone that keeps the stone cool. It weighs 6.31 carats.

This larger peach shield cut, with a different overtone, has a couple of spots in one corner, but the view from the table is nothing, but bright and flashing.  Still something keeps this peach cool and not really ripe to be eye candy.  It is a pity, but then its different look does add dimension to the collection.   This shield cut weighs 6.31 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.
