An included round from the sea.#1158

Heavily include with interesting green color, round This standard round brilliant is heavily included, which limits its flash. Still it has a nice medium dark tone level and an interesting green hue. It weighs 2.10 carts.

This is an old stone that is so included that it sat away from the collection for years.  Still when I was getting the collection in order for this website and photography, I looked it over again.  And I still like its medium toned green.  Now the inclusions are still there, but a seasoned eye finds them less obnoxious.  None of the them in danger the stone or make it look like it has been cracked.  Just a lot of a fine interlocking web-like inclusions.  So it has place and weighs 2.10 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.
