A fine medium light oval with three rows of steps.#254

Slightly included, bright, medium light tone level, pink oval.  #254 This is a nice bigger oval with a three step crown. Its pink is pure and of a medium light tone level. It appears to be eye clean and is very bright. It weighs 4.85 carats.

It takes a bit of effect to climb the three rows of steps that lead up to the table on this larger oval.  But went you get there, you see a great pool of pink with just a little scatter of flashes from inclusions.  Its medium light tone level and bright pastel pink color hide nothing.   This flashy stone weighs 4.85 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.
