A medium dark pink droplet of color

The round pinks keep rolling along droplet of color. This standard round brilliant is a bit darker than most pastels. It appears to be eye clean and with good crystal. It weighs 1.02 carats and was sized up to be a droplet of color for sometime.

When I compared this standard round brilliant with other pinks in the collection, it comes in a little richer than most pastels.  It certainly does not approach the red/pink area that tends to be included.  This richer round appears to be eye clean with good crystal.  It weighs 1.02 carats and drops right into being a droplet of color with ease.


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.
