Medium sized with a medium toned pink to peach slider, round#252

Pink peach slider that is eye clean, round This standard round brilliant is a nice average gem that is eye clean and with good crystal. Pink and orange slide around depending on the light. It weighs 2.46 carats.

Research has shown that two areas of the visible spectrum produce shifts of color with tone level that are non-linear.  A darker line will not necessary have the same color as a lighter line even if you use the same ink.  I am running into many pink/peach like that posted standard round brilliant, that are in the red/orange non-linear area.  The effect that you will notice is that the photograph may not look that close to my description.  I will try and do better, but I am looking at the genuine article when I describe it, not the photograph.  The posted stone appears to be eye clean and of medium tone.  It weighs 2.46 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.
