Golden Yellow Droplet


A golden droplet of color A nice classic standard round brilliant and at .80 carats, a find addition to the droplets of color group. #957

This is a classic droplet of color and does show up well with the group.  It  would be a lot more in demand if it had a purer yellow.  Still its place is assured because it lacks any green in its uniform mixture of a paler golden a/b color and the dominant c axis color, a moderate golden hue (color).  It weighs .80 carats and is a standard round brilliant cut gem.


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.
