Namibian Indicolite with single inclusion, droplet of color.#726

Included blue round from Namibia This bright medium dark toned standard round brilliant has a white inclusion toward the girdle. It is a pretty, smaller droplet and still has merit despite its inclusion. It weighs .48 carats.

This standard round brilliant is blue and will have nothing to do with green.  It purity is compromised by an easily seen white non-reflective inclusion that is close to the girdle.  I don’t believe that it endangers the physical integrity of the round.  This droplets of color has a medium dark tone value.  It weighs .48 carats.  This round has merit despite its flaw.


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.
