Darker Grass Green Oval#1055


Darker Grass Green Oval This very nice oval is darker grass green. Its crown is a three step cut that makes its eye clean body look "modern". It weighs 2.39 carats.

This oval has a three step emerald cut like crown that opens up fields of grass green color as it is moved.  It does not appear to be dichroic and its tone level is higher than average with the group I call grass green.   It is eye clean and that combined with its style of crown, gives the gemstone a “modern” feel.  It weighs 2.39 carats and would make a fine ring 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.
