A great and solid green emerald cut with dark ends.

An exceptional solid green emerald cut with dark ends. This emerald cut has dark ends, but the beauty of the a/b axis's, medium toned green overwhelms the darkness. It is a eye clean beauty and has great crystal. It weighs 4.93 carats.

Now no one wants dark ends, but if that is the fate of your tourmaline, than at least get one that has great color.  Well this longer ratio emerald cut tourmaline has one great solid green color.  Its medium toned a/b color flashes stoplight green in my yellowish light and even a bluer natural sky leaves the emerald cut with a solid forest green.  The longer ratio makes the dark ends a smaller part of the stone which was cut with normal angles.  It weighs a solid 4.93 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.
