It has never been prettier riding the edge of red, oval.#295

Rich sultry red pink that is eye clean and powerful, oval  #295 This is a beautiful gemstone. It rides the edge of red with flashing glory. It appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal. It weighs a fine 5.88 carats of eye grabbing color.

This oval has a rather self effacing personality.  She has too high a tone level, with its reddish implications, to be a hot pink and not quite enough size or tone level to be a red.  Still she rides the red edge with flash and sultry fire.  Complemented by being eye clean and with fine crystal, not one is prettier than this magnificent oval.  It weighs 5.88 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.
