Darker orange some would call burnt droplet of color #55

Medium dark toned orange, a little burnt, but nicely done, droplet of color.  #55 This standard round brilliant has a very nice medium dark tone level and a good saturated orange color. There is certainly brown in this eye clean droplet of color, but it is not excessive. It weighs .86 carats.

I have never really liked the term burnt for orange and this droplet of color really has a pretty good saturation level in a medium dark tone level.  It really does not have an excessive level of brown.  It appears to be eye clean and will be very useful for the the droplets of color’s, grand presentation, I think.  It weighs .86 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.
