Medium toned yellow with wash of green is laid back, round#91

A bit toned down yellow with a wash of green, round.  #91 This standard round brilliant is a rather mild yellow with a wash of green. It appears to be eye clean and has fine crystal. Its larger size of 6.10 carats supports a medium tone level in this flashy gemstone. .

This standard round brilliant is eye clean with great crystal. She might aspire to be eye candy, but is just too laid back and sophisticated to make the grade.  Her reserved nature would lend itself to a white metal treatment, since yellow gold would be completely overwhelming.  We must respect this staunch member, of the  group of  significant tourmalines that are both, over 5 carats and without faults.  She actually weighs in at 6.10 carats and effectively uses her larger size to keep her medium tone level up.


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.
