A shifty blue that has a green streek depending on the light, droplet of light.

Great blue to green medium toned droplet of color.  #638 This standard round brilliant is a little ball of blazing reflection. It shifts around blue to green depending on the light and its eye clean pastel nature. It weighs .82 carats.

This medium toned blue shifts to more green than expected under the yellowish light.  But boy does it love incandescent light.   So we will call it a blue green pastel, droplet of color, with visions of greatness, because it drinks in color as the day slips away.  It appears to be eye clean and crystal bright.  It weighs .82 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.
