Delightful medium light peach, shield cut.

Very nice eye clean pastel peach shield cut. The shield cut does its very best for this pastel peach gemstone. Between the cut and an eye clean body with fine crystal, the 1.01 carat stone really flashes.

This shield cut brings the best out in a peach tourmaline.  The cuts nature is to be flashy and bright.  This coupled this with a medium light tone and eye clean peach, makes a great stone.  This is about as small as I cut shield cuts and I am glad I put the extra work into it.  It would make a great piece of jewelery in white gold, but not yellow gold, because I think it would be lost in a yellow gold setting.  The shield cut weighs 1.01 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.
