Long ratio, semi closed ends, spicy green emerald cut.#1145

Nice spicy green emerald cut with semi-closed ends. This emerald cut has a spicy yellow green color and semi-closed ends. It long ratio minimizes the impact of the closed ends. It appears to be eye clean and weighs 1.77 carats.

I went to college in Colorado in the late sixties from New Jersey.  Besides being introduced to many delicacies of western fare, I ran into Mexican food for the first time.  When I asked my “friends” which salsa I should put on my food they all said the green one.  Well I wasn’t born yesterday, though I was a lot closer to the date than I am now, and tasted the green salsa before applying it.  WOW was it hot, I realize now that it wasn’t really that hot, but that was the way of the world then for me.

This emerald cut is green salsa hot and it won’t cool down for a long long time.  It appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal.  Its long ratio minimizes the impact of the semi-closed ends that still flash.  It weighs 1.77 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.
