Bright, dyamite ,hot pink eye candy, droplet of color.#646

Included, high stepping, rich hot pink, droplet of color.  #646 This droplet of color has an exceptional, medium dark, hot pink color. The standard round brilliant has a number of non-reflecting inclusions on the pavilion that don't bother the gem face up. It weighs 1.80 carats.

It is amazing to me, how many faults in a stone, can be overlooked when it is eye candy.  This hot pink, which is one step up from most, has a number of inclusions around the pavilion.  They really have little impact on the newly elected droplet of color, because they don’t flash and they are buried in such richly toned, bright flashing color.  So the recommended dose of eye candy from this source is, enjoy face up and don’t bother checking out the rest.  It weighs 1.80 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.
