Bright dancing yellow green dynamic oval

Very nice medium light pastel green oval This oval may have a bit of an inclusion, it slides into yellowish green easily and is bright and flashy. It weighs 2.65 carats.

This flashing oval may have a bit of an inclusion that is very difficult to see by eye and has not impact on the stone.  I confess that I am drawn to greens that are open and not dichroic like this oval.  Its medium light pastel nature is a minty green in natural light that quickly goes yellowish in yellowish light.  Another example of a dynamic tourmaline that needs to be walked and lived with to fully appreciate it beauty.  It weighs a universally useful weight of 2.65 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.
