Included medium pink droplet of color.#2

Moderately dark toned pink with touch of purple droplet of color.  #2 This standard round brilliant has an average amount of flash. It is lightly included, but with little effect on the stone. It brings a bit of added wealth to the droplets of color at 1.11 carats of rich color.

This pink standard round brilliant may have a touch of purple in its color.  I see one feather between the table and the girdle, but there are probably more light inclusions, because this is a color that is generally included.  It has a moderate amount of flash that is probably limited by it moderate dark tone and the touch of purple that tends to effect the level of flash in pink tourmaline.  An unusual effect that I have seen too much of.  This droplet of color weighs 1.11 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.
