A round that inherited a yellow rust color from the rough, but is peach.#708

A find delicate peach, from mixing rust and yellow, round. I like pastel peach, standard round brilliants. They are always bright and flashy even if they are of mixed colors. This round is also eye clean and ready to go. It weighs 1.95 carats.

This standard round brilliant has mixed up the colors of rust and yellow that could be seen in the rough into peach.  It is a great property of rounds to flash away zoning, at least from face up.  If you turn the gemstone over and look carefully you should be able to see the unmixed colors.  In this case it is difficult to see the original colors, but what is a rusty yellow or a peach between friends.

This very bright flashy round appears to be eye clean and is great fun to swirl, no mater what name you give its color.  It has a fine medium pastel tone level that just lets the good times roll.  It weighs 1.95 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.
