A one a day pink oval to keep the doctor away.

A slightly included middle of the road pink. This oval is fully pink and ready to go. It has a slight feather that makes little difference in the stone. It loves my yellowish light. This bright flashy oval weighs 2.07 carats.

This very nice middle of the road pink oval has a two step crown that produces an interesting stone.  I have been cutting more of them and getting good reviews.  I can see a faint feather when I check the stone on its crown, but face up it looks really clean.  Under the yellow light, the ovals tone level and brightness increase.  Everyone who loves gemstones should have an incandescent light just to appreciate the beauty of some gemstones under yellowish light.  The oval weighs 2.07 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.
