A mature, toned down purplish pink droplet of color.#607

A darker rose colored droplet of color.  #607 This standard round brilliant pink rides on the edge of red, with a wash of purple. It has a darker tone and a more sedate personality. It weighs 1.07 carats and is a genuine member of the droplets of color.

This standard round brilliant is riding on the edge of red, while being dragged down in tone by a wash of purple.  I guess being dragged down seems a little negative and this rose colored stone is very attractive, but I see a consistent increase in tone level and a more muted presence when purple is mixed in with  pink.  The round is eye clean and weighs 1.07 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.
