A pink oval for the common man#256

A delicate pink oval This oval is a pleasant mixture of medium light toned pink, good crystal, and cleanliness. It would make a nice delicate ring or pendant. It weighs 1.34 carats.

This pink tourmaline oval is bright and eye clean and flashy and moderate light in tone and has good saturation and  is probably the only natural gemstone that you can buy, at a reasonable price, with those gemological properties.  I have cut a lot of it to fill in the spaces between more uncommon colors.  Still I shouldn’t loose an appreciation, that these pink tourmaline can bring to people who just want to have a beautiful natural stone in the color they love, pink.  So here is one 1.34 carat pink tourmaline oval for the pink people


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.
