A pink with the brawn to make a statement oval.#272

Bright, flashy, medium tone level, pink oval  #272 This larger oval appears to be eye clean and has a fine medium toned pastel pink color. It has fine crystal and is bright and flashy. It weighs a fine 6.72 carats.

This moderately toned pure pink oval has a slightly flatter crown than usual.  This makes a greetings that draws you into a wonderfully flashy and pure well of color.  And for those lovers of tourmaline and those who would like to be, that I know are out there, this color blast is unmatched by any other type of gemstone in this size that I ever hope to see.  This oval appears to be eye clean and has fine crystal.   It weighs a fine 6.72 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.
