Deep, completely cut, open medium pastel blue green emerald cut.#376

Beautiful, medium toned blue green emerald cut.  #376 This emerald cut has completely open ends that flash beautifully. It is deeply cut and only slightly, if at, dichroic. It appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal. It weighs 4.08 carats.

This is a great gemstone.  I cut it with the full complement of 3 steps of facets on the crown and 4 steps of facets on the pavilion.  This, along with a medium toned blue green color, that flashes from completely open ends, produces  a deep well of beauty.  It has some subtlety in its color, but doesn’t appear to be significantly dichroic.  It is completely eye clean and has excellent crystal.  It weighs  a very nice 4.08 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.
