Nice flashy, ice blue pastel, droplet of color. This standard round brilliant is a pretty stone. Its icy blue pastel color stands up to the sun. It appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal. it weighs .94 carats.

This is one cool stone of icy blue without a gray cast.  It appears to be eye clean and of fine crystal.  I think that few people would think that it is an indicolite because it not dichroic in the least and has such a light open feeling.  This very flashy standard round brilliant weighs .94 carats and is a fine addition to the droplets.  Late flash, the sun has come out and this pastel beauty has meet the stress test of every pastel and still displayed a nice blue in full sunlight.


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.
