Be cool orange droplet of color. #75

A toned down orange droplet of color.  #75 This standard round brilliant is a calm, toned down orange. It appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal. It has reasonable flash for a medium dark round, that has been promoted to droplet of color status.

Now when I see a bright orange piece of eye candy, I get excited, but the posted droplet of color leaves me with a different feeling.  It is just a toned down cool cat, that doesn’t like to run with the really flashy crowd.  Still he has a nice flash, fine crystal and appears to be eye clean.  So I am calm with this 1.76 carats gemstone that is a bit different orange.


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.
