Nice, middle of the road, eye clean, Nigerian, pink round.#50

A nice eye clean middle of the road pink round. This standard round brilliant is a nice eye clean stone. its pink has a moderate tone level and is a pastel. Its fine crystal helps to make the gemstone flashy and it weighs 2.37 carats.

This is the type of gemstone that needs to be on its own, to impress someone.  It is at least eye clean and very bright in its garb of medium toned, average pink pastel color, but that is not enough to grab the eye when it is surrounded by so many bigger and more unusual tourmalines.  So if you would see this fine 2.37 carats pink round in a nice ring or other piece of jewelry, I am sure that it would grab your eye.  Frankly how many other kinds of gemstones have such a great affordable pink, like tourmaline.


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.
