A very nice pretty average darker pink oval#284

Attractive pretty average pink oval This stone is a nice overall pink, that really has all the good properties. But its color is not exceptional. Still it would be a fine performer in a piece of jewelery. It weighs 4.43 carats.

This gemstone doesn’t have any gemological problems, but its medium dark pink color is not exceptional.  Still it is a solid performer and would make a fine center stone in a distinctive ring.  It has enough richness of color to stand up to being worn without quickly loosing its appeal as pastel are inclined to do.  Cleaning the ring daily is the key to keeping it beautiful.  It weighs 4.43 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.
