A unusally light toned purple pink round.#22

Medium light toned pink with a twist of purple round.  #22 This standard round brilliant is eye clean and with fine crystal. Its pink color with a twist of purple is more sedate than a pure pink, but it is still a bright gem with a bit of a different twist with the purple. It weighs 2.16 carats.

This medium lightly toned round is a purple shade different than the abundant pinks all around it.  The standard round brilliant appears to be eye clean and with good crystal, yet it is not exceptionally flashy when compared with similar pinks.  Still it is a nice bright stone with a little bit different twist that makes it welcome in the collection.  It weighs 2.16 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.
