Another Nambian blue green winner.

Great bright blue green Namibian oval This gemstone has blue that drifts into green under yellowish light. A really bright demeanor and a clean and open personality. It is a GEM and weighs 1.77 carats.

Somehow I don’t think that many blue greens are as bright as a true blues.  It is probably my preference for the rarer blue.  Well this bright Namibian blue green can keep up with the best medium dark toned blues.  It is also eye clean and has great crystal.  It is a joy to find it as I go threw early trays that were organized by my son after the last Carnegie Gem and Mineral Show.  This first class gemstone weighs 1.77 carats.  As I checked out the gemstone’s purity, I noticed that the pavilion has a “super nova” cut that shows you how much effort I put into this gem to make it the best it could be.


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.
