Eye clean and hot enough to flash, round.#1109

Nice hotter pink in an eye clean, with fine crystal, round. Nice to see a hotter pink that is eye clean. It has a medium tone and a well saturated color. It is a very nice gemstone that needs a chance to shine on its own. It weighs .87 carats

This very flashy standard round brilliant has a nice pink color that is pretty hot in my yellowish light, but calms down a bit in the light of a new day.  It appears to be eye clean and without chipping which can be a problem with hotter pinks.  It weighs .87 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.
