One of a continuous grade of blue to blue green rounds.#136

A fine medium toned Indicolite round. #136 This standard round brilliant is proud to be a true blue Indicolite. It has inclusions in it pavilion that are not noticeable face up. It is a beautiful gemstone that weighs 3.07 carats.

This blue tourmaline just stops short of blue green in my yellowish light, but is a great blue under both daylight and incandescent, so it is an Indicolite.  It is proud to wear the name and be true blue under reasonable light sources, but its medium blue tone level is a little on the watery side. (It might be bit grayish)  Anyway this is a beautiful gemstone.  It has some inclusions in the pavilion that I did not notice until I turned it over to check.  They are dark and do not flash.  This standard round brilliant weighs 3.07 fine 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.
