Bright, eye clean, medium toned pink round.#46

A very nice larger average pink round,  Nigerian  #46 This standard round brilliant is eye clean with an average pink in natural light and a much hotter pink under yellowish light. It weighs 7 carats and is probably from Nigeria, because it is so clean.

This standard round brilliant is a nice large pink that really has not problems.  It probably came from Nigeria and my yellowish light really ignites it into a spice pink.  In sunlight it is a much more of a medium toned, average pink.  It weighs 7 carats which is a good sized stone.


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.
