Included average green droplet of color The inclusions in the standard droplet of color are toward the girdle and do not impact the stone too much. It is an average green with a medium dark tone value. It weighs .86 carats and is a droplet.

This standard round brilliant has a couple of white flaws and a faint feather that are  next to the girdle.  They do not impact the beauty of the gemstone very much.  The rest of the stone has  decent clarity and a middle of the road green that is pretty stable.  Its darker tone level keeps it from being a very flashy gemstone.  It weighs .86 carats and is a droplet.


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.
