Golden Brown Honey for the Droplet of Color#727

A bit different honey brown droplet of color. This bright and eye clean droplet of color is a bit different honey brown color. Not the hottest color in commerce, but a nice addition to the broad sweep of color in the droplets. It weighs .89 carats.

This standard round brilliant is a sweet treat for the droplets of color.   A brown overtone maybe a liability for some gemstones, but not for the pretty piece.  It is only a touch of honey brown and that makes the medium toned round a little bit different.  A real plus in the colorful world of this collection.  It weighs .89 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.
