Not quite a midnight rose, droplet of color.#637

A wash of purple and a darker rose, droplet of color  #637 This standard round brilliant needs the light to be appreciated as a rose colored, flash driven, droplet of color. The round appears to be eye clean and with a crisp crystal. It weighs 1.12 carats.

This pink has been toned down by a wash of purple to make a medium dark rose that blooms a dark smile.  It is interesting how a touch of purple increase the tone level significantly in pinks that would probably prefer to be hot.  Still, their cleanliness tends to be very good and they keep flashing even if they are more sedate.  It weighs 1.12 carats and the droplets have found some flashlights to help guide her, the midnight rose, to the light.  She will flash them a smile, when she arrives.


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.
