A powerful orange with a bit of red oval

Slightly included powerful orange oval This orange oval with a bit of red is a rich vibrant gemstone. It does have a light feather near the girdle, but it crystal is excellent and everything in the stone flashes brightly. It weighs 2.36 carats.

I don’t know if orange is a “power” color in anyone’s book because it usually just a fun color.  Even a bit fruity at times, but the orange of this stone speaks of authority.  Its color is stable and penetrating and I speak to it in a hushed and respectful.way.  It does have a slight feather at the girdle that can not be seen face up and I never bring up in front of him.  His crystal is excellent and he is very bright and flashy for a darker, richer toned stone.  He weighs a healthy 2.36 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.
