medium toned, blue baguette  #355 This baguette is the only one I have cut. It is a nice medium blue and appears to be both eye clean and of fine crystal. It weighs .81 carats.

I decided to cut a baguette to see how I would like it.  I decided that I much preferred emerald cuts so this medium blue one was the only baguette I have cut.  It has a nice medium tone and is eye clean.  It weighs .81 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.
