Green to blue green, medium dark, droplet of color.#140

A fine green to blue green shifter, droplet of color. #140 This standard round brilliant appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal. It is rather open and flashy for a medium dark toned green to blue green shifter. It weighs 1.56 and joins the colorful droplets of color.

This is a very pretty droplet of color with a very nice, rich, shifting color between green and blue green.  It likes light as most medium dark tone gems appreciate, but it seems more open than most to more moderate conditions. It would make a wonderful intimate piece of jewelry that would give many different color statements depending on the light.  It appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal.  It weighs 1.56 carats and is cut as a standard round brilliant.


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.
