Grass Green with a Feather threw its heart, emerald cut#1063

Grass Green with feather emerald cut This bright grass green emerald cut has a faint feather across the middle of the gemstone. It has an excellent tone level and weighs 1.69 carats.


This rather squat emerald cut really lights up from its acid yellow green of spring grass.  The flash tries to hid a feather thew the center of the emerald cut, but it is easily seen when you examine the stone from the back.  I don’t know if the stone can be set, but it certainly can light of a corner of my collection for as long as it wants.  There is also a light amount of scatter in the stone that the emerald cut shows honestly.  This smaller effort weighs1.69 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.
