Medium plus tone level and slight inclusions droplet of color.#17

Nice darker medium toned well saturated pink droplet of color.  #17 This is one of the troopers in the collection. Slight included like most pinks, but still bright and flashy with an average darker medium tone level. This standard round brilliant weighs 1.37 carats.

The droplets of color have been waiting a while for a nice richer pink to fit into their group.  This slightly included standard round brilliant is just such a stone.  As usual this variety of tourmaline is at least slightly included, but with this stone, only enough to prove that it is genuinely a tourmaline.  Nothing to hold back a lover of pink from having a nice stone for a piece of jewelry.  It weighs 1.37 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.
