Darker Yellow Green Clean Round

Darker yellow green, eye clean, round. This standard round brilliant is not a standard tourmaline green, it has too much yellow in it. It is eye clean and has reasonable flash for a darker toned gem. It weighs 2. 72 carats.

This standard round brilliant is a yellow green with a higher tone level than most.  I would not call it a classic tourmaline green because it is too yellow.  It appears to eye clean and has excellent crystal.  At 2.72 carats it is big enough to stand alone.


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.
