Moderate inclusions and a hot red/pink, round#762

Bright,hot red pink round, that is included. This standard round brilliant is a hot red pink. It is moderately included and the flash from the feathers is both noticeable and expected in this color of tourmaline. It weighs 2.10 carats.

This standard round brilliant’s inclusion would be a disappointment except for the rounds bright hot red pink look that makes them a normal occurrence.  I don’t think that red/pinks in tourmaline are as burdened as emeralds with imperfections, but they are certainly more common than in the greens and blues.  This round’s flash is impacted by the reflections of its feathers, but it is still a medium toned, bright setting for a great color.  It weighs 2.10 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.
