Exciting bright crisp pink oval.

Great, Bright, Flashy, Medium Toned Pink, Oval The title just about says it all, about this pink oval that has it all. The pink even has a great saturation level to boot. It weighs 2.00 carats, which is a fine ring size gemstone.

I have seen a lot of pink tourmaline and there is a certain fatigue that builds up, but each time I see a pink like this oval, the excitement returns.  I don’t think that there is any other kind of gemstone that produces a greater variety of pinks at anything close to the affordability of tourmaline.  And while I am thinking, when tourmaline has the proper angles and with the  best polish possible, it can stand up to a close comparison with any other gemstone. With that said this beautiful pink is bright and flashy with a great medium tone level.  It appears to not be dichroic and is eye clean.  It weighs 2.00 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.
