Get Your Red Hot Pink Oval#1080

To Hot Not to Touch, Pink Oval To me this is an example of the best pink out there in tourmaline and that is saying a lot. I have some outstanding pastels also, but that is a different story. This oval weighs 2.79 carats and has it all.

You want a hot pink, I got a hot pink.  You want a clean stone, I got a clean stone.  You want a great hue, but one that is not too toned down for intimate lighting, well I have that to.  It is all in this beautiful gemstone.  I might add that it is a “Modern Milly” with its revealing three step top.  But no matter how close you look, until maybe you get slapped, you won’t find any flaws in her.  I have bought many pieces if tourmaline rough over the years that have the top billing, in pink, of being “hot” with a varying degree of success.  (I turn most offers down today)  But this pink blazer is the real deal that weighs in at 2.79 carats and will not fail to please.


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.
