A golden droplet of color.

This slightly included golden gift is a droplet of color. This golden color with a touch of brown is a rare color and the standard round brilliant show its glory off well. It is very slightly included, but that makes little difference in this droplet of color. It weighs 1.40 carats.

I think I found gold in my stash of tourmaline rough years ago.  The pastel golden tourmaline with just a touch of brown had been purchased in the quest to  see all the nuances of light yellowish browns that I could get.  It was fun, since this color is much rarer than you might think, but it is not really commercial and in demand.  The leader of the group is Queen Ecru, who is  review in another post.  She is larger than all the rest of her subjects and wishes to challenge all the more brightly color gemstones in beauty.

This modest standard round brilliant is willing to go along for the ride.`He is not bother excessively by brown and has great transparency.  he is very slightly included, but he hides it well.  This bright flashy medium toned golden round with a touch of brown, weighs 1.40 carats and has already been mined by the droplets 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.
