Just you average hot pink standout, round#36

A medium toned, middle of the road rider of a pink, round.  #36 This standard round brilliant would make a fine piece of jewelery . It is eye clean with a bright well saturated look, but not excessively hot. This round weighs 2.41 carats.

Sometimes it is hard for a great stone to show its stuff in the collection.  Surrounded by a lot of competition is hard on the ego.  It can also make the decision about what is a reasonable choice for a piece of jewelery  more difficult.  A large size and distinctive color may look great in a plastic storage box, but is it really practical in a piece of jewelry and does it go with your outfits?

This is a great practical stone.  Its pink is eye clean and forthright without being too much of an eye grabber.  Its medium tone and fine crystal makes it flash under a wide variety of light levels.  It weighs 2.41 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.
