Nice, eye clean, average pink droplet of color#14

Nice eye, clean, medium pink round.  #14 This standard round brilliant appears to be eye clean and has a very nice, medium toned, average pink color. It is bright, flashy and weighs .83 carats.

Where would the collection be without a multitude of troupers, small stones with reasonable properties, but nothing different.  It would be much smaller and I would have run out of material to cut a long time ago.  This is one of those nice troupers.  It appears to be eye clean and a most pleasant medium toned pink.  It weighs .83 carats and will have to wait to end of the season to see if she is picked for the team.


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.
