Medium pink troopers and the building of a collection, oval.

A bright pink,eye clean oval This oval and its many siblings are islands of clean crisp beauty in the collection. They have a light enough tone to be effective under most lighting conditions. This oval weighs 1.39 carats.

A bright, eye clean, find crystal, in a medium toned, pink, oval.  Does that sound familiar, well it is available when other colors are not.  And I need to keep cutting and they are relatively affordable.  And if you hadn’t seen the same film many times it would be a beautiful experience.  So I need to step back and look at this stone and not its many siblings.  This stone is beautiful and would make a fine piece of jewelery. The only real problem with a stone like this and any other pastel is that they need to be keep clean to be appreciated.  This pleasant pink oval weighs1.39 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.
