Average Dichroic Pink Oval#1043


A really nice all around average pink oval This pink is dichroic and mixes the light and darker pink well. It has an average tone level and a common hue/color. It is eye clean and weighs 2.24 carats.

I can easily see a pale pink and a richer c axis color in this gemstone.  It does a good job of mixing the colors and the result is a solid average pink.  It is eye clean and has a middle of the road tone level.  It is one of the more commonly available looks in tourmaline coming out of African at the moment.  It is eye clean and weighs 2.24 carats.  Now, I am really not without enthusiasm for this stone, but it really doesn’t give me a bit of difference in my color world.


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.
