Light toned included pastel blue droplet of color.#111

Moderately included, lightly tone pastel blue droplet of color. #111 This standard round brilliant is moderately included, but still has plenty of flash power to show off its light pastel color. It weighs 1.75 carats and was attractive to the droplets of color.

This is one of the darker blue round from a lot I bought years ago from Afghanistan and it is still just light in tone.  It is also moderately included which does not stop the standard round brilliant from being bright and flashy.  It weighs 1.75 carats and included or not the droplets love the color.


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.
