Included larger yellow washed in green, round. #81

Included yellow with a wash of green round.  #81 This standard round brilliant is a piece of eye candy. In its bright heart are numerous tiny inclusions that flash like stars. It makes an interesting and a bit different gemstone that weighs 5.46 carats.

Did you ever go to a planetarium as a child and wonder at all the tiny specks of light that flashed on the rounded ceiling.  Well this larger standard round brilliant has the same kind of multitude of tiny lights that are caused by inclusions, that reflect like stars, in a yellow heaven washed with green.  The round is still a piece of eye candy, that means it is still sparkly and with good transparency.  So I guess you can focus on the good features or the not so good features of this gem, but it does make a statement at 5.46 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.
