In this oval we have BIG PURE PINK.

A fine large clean PINK oval. This oval is a fine medium toned pure pink gemstone. It is eye clean and has find crystal. It is very pink and weighs 11.39 carats.

In many tourmalines you have at least two colors.  In some tourmaline you have only one color, but it is in a graded series of tone values,  finally you have a uniform color, but it doesn’t have a good saturation and the overtones take away from the stone’s color purity.  But with the posted oval, you get miles and miles of PINK.  It weighs in at 11.39 carats and it is in your face if you say anything less than PINK  about it.  It has a quality of crystal and the lack of inclusions to stand up to any appraisal, which better say it is PINK.  If you see this gemstone in person you will be in the PINK.  A bright, medium toned pink that is.


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.
