Included Blond Butterscotch to Yellow oval.#1087


Yellow to Golden included oval. This oval has a 2 step crown and though is included, it is still bright and flashy. It weighs 2.64 carats.

The sun just really came out and the butterscotch just got a lot yellower.  Under either lighting condition this included, but still bright oval looks like eye candy.  I really appreciate tourmalines that are yellow without green or being too golden.  I know that it is at least partly do to their rarity, but any color with good saturation (purity of color) is a joy to included in the collection.  This is the junior member of a pair of gemstones cut from one big alluvial pebble.  Its bigger brother is more golden in appearance and also has a nice place, on the edges of the proper tourmaline world that would like to have a cleaner character.  It weighs 2.64 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.
