A pale, baby pink round from Afghanistan#764

Pale baby pink slightly included round from Afghanistan This standard round brilliant is slightly included, but still bright and flashy. It is a rather pale baby pink and came from Afghanistan. It weighs .41 carats.

This standard round brilliant has just enough pink to not be an IceT, but is pale for such a small round.  Still its delicate beauty smiles threw its lightly included surface and rewards me for my effort.  I weighs .41 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.
