A honey of a golden orange droplet of color. #66

Very nice, clean, golden orange droplet of color.#66 This standard round brilliant has a great golden orange color. The droplet of color appears to be eye clean and a really sweet, eye candy, gem. It weighs 1.33 carats.

This round has a lower crown than usual, which gives the stone a very open appearance.  It really is a sweet gem with a bright, eye candy, look of golden orange honey.  it appears to be eye clean and the best example of this shade of orange that the collection has.  It must be a droplet of color since its weight of 1.33 carats and different shade of orange demands it.


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.
