A Natural Blue that is Shifty, Emerald Cut#1066


Great blue green shifter, emerald cut This well made emerald cut shows both blue and green depending on the light. It has great crystal and is flawless. It weighs 4.13 carats.

I have seen it before and I hope to see it again.  A beautifully formed emerald cut with four rows of facets on the pavilion and three rows of facets on the crown.  This forms the structure to display a sophisticated shade of blue the wanders into a green with an incandescent light, that is hard to describe,  but here goes.  It is a bright yet pastel green that has not left its blue side completely behind, yet speaks for itself.  If it was a bit more grayed my mother would love it.  The emerald cut really shouts out with its great crystal and  flawless nature.  It has a medium light tone level and weighs 4.13 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.
