Delightful Green Droplet#211


Nice Medium Toned Green Droplet This bright, medium toned standard round brilliant is clean and appears eye clean. It weighs 1.25 carats and is a proud member of the droplets.

Sometimes it is just nice being green, even if the morning light make you a little blue.  This standard round brilliant has nothing bad to have reported on its beauty .  I have a soft spot for medium toned, round greens because they are not that common.  Between closed ends and rough that has longer ratios between their width and length, I can’t cut many green rounds either practically or efficiently.   This gemstone weighs 1.25 carats and is a proud droplet.


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.
