Included, Bright, Crisp, Pastel Yellow touch of Brown, emerald cut.

Included creamy yellow emerald cut. This pastel yellow emerald cut with a touch of brown is bright and very clean except for one included corner. It has a uniform color and weighs 2.29 carats.

If cream was transparent, then it would better fit the color of this emerald cut.  So imagine a pastel yellow that is uniform threw out the gemstone and has a transparent creamy touch to it.  I don’t think the touch of brown detracts from the color of this gemstone at all.   It even make it a little more interesting, in the eyes of tourmaline hunter like me.

I was going to call this bright flashy emerald cut eye clean until I noticed a flash from one of the corners.  After I turned it over and got my loop, I can easily see a small cluster of inclusions that would be covered by the prongs, if the stone would be set.  Now that I know where I am looking, I can easily see the inclusions by eye.  The rest of the emerald, especially under the table is very clean and with fine crystal.  I like the color of this emerald cut that is a bit different and weighs 2.29 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.
