A yellow green bi color that appears to be eye clean, emerald cut.#450

wonder, subtle, but effective, green to yellow bicolor, emerald cut.  #45vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv I love this stone. It gradually goes from pastel yellow to a medium green color in a great bicolor. It appears to be eye clean and is as bright as an emerald cut can be. It weighs 8.33 carats.

I love this stone.  It is a wonderfully subtle, but effective mixture of about 2/3 medium toned green and 1/3 quite pale yellow.  It is as bright as an emerald cut can be with superior crystal and the complete lack of any distracting flaws.  The colors grade into one another rather than having a sharp boundary.  This definitely makes for a more stable stone.  It weighs 8.33 carats and though the collection was built around color and not combinations of colors, I always love a nice bicolor.


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.
