Dark Sapphire like droplet#1092

A moving sapphire blue droplet. A rich tone of blue without green makes for a nice addition to the droplets. Any larger stone would be too dark. It is a standard round brilliant and weighs .62 carats.

This droplet needs to be moved to give up its flash driven rich blue color.  The color has good saturation without any green.  His is proud of the rich color, but is not move to preform at droplet functions unless there is good lighting.    He keeps his inclusions to himself, but I don’t see anything the inhibits his flash. He is a standard round brilliant and weighs .62 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.
