Between yellow and green this is toward the darker green side, round.#195

This yellow green is stong in the green, medium dark round.  #195 This standard round brilliant has a medium dark tone level of yellow green color that is rich in green. It appears to be eye clean and has fine crystal. It weighs 3.76 carats.

I have posted on yellow greens and most of them are on the yellower end.  This count  really does not include many classic green colors of tourmaline that are just this side of pure green and not a blue green.  Well this standard round brilliant is still included in the spectrum of color going from yellow to green, but it is a medium dark toned gemstone.  It also has a limited amount of yellow.  This cuts down on the flash, but it is still bright.  It appears to be eye clean and has fine crystal, like most green tourmaline.  It weighs 3.76 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.
