Included bright blue green oval This oval was one of four cut from a large cobbled piece of rough. It is included and with only decent crystal. Still it is bright and has a moderate tone, well saturated, blue green color. It weighs 3.42 carats.

This is one of the ovals that I cut from a large piece of included rough.  This stone has a moderate amount of inclusions, but is still bright and flashy.  I have posted about cutting this oval in a post about cutting rough with inclusions.  Please read it for more information on this oval.  This stone is not dichroic and looks a lot like sea foam.  It weighs 3.42 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.
