A fine medium light toned pastel blue round.#144

A fine medium lightly toned stable blue droplet of color. #144 This standard round brilliant is a great mixture of medium light toned blue, eye clean body and fine crystal for a great look. The droplet of color were impressed and this 1.84 carats roller is painting the sky as one of their own.

Under my yellowish light this pastel blue, which stays blue, really drinks in the color and becomes a solid medium tone.  I have to realize that this gemstone will not be as intense under daylight. (I also checked the back of its storage box for its tone level).  The standard round brilliant appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal.  It is nice to have a lighter tone level blue that is both stable and clean.  It weighs 1.84 carats and flashed it way past security and is now a wanted droplet of color.


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.
