Decent pink oval#969


Darker Pink Oval This smaller 1.09 standard brilliant round is a decent stone. It is mildly included, but it still has a nice flash. It has a good darker pink hue.

This richer pink, lightly included, oval is a decent stone.  It has a two row step cut crown.  It is the type of gemstone that kind of get lost in this collection, but if you’re looking for a smaller (1.09 carat) ring size stone, this one would be a nice choice.







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.
