One tall order of pure peach pink delight. oval.#296

A very deep bright peach pink oval  #296 This oval has a supper nova pavilion that makes a very deep flashy gemstone. It appears to be eye clean and has fine crystal. It has a medium toned peach pink color and weighs 10.08 carats.

When an oval is as deep as this gemstone is, you get pulled right down into its flashy depths.  And this is no tall tale either.  The proof is in looking at the pavilion and seeing a “super nova” cut done in all its flashing glory.  There is nothing to block your sight, like inclusion, feathers, flaws or just plain poor crystal.  The stone also gained a nice medium tone level peach pink color that would have not carried the day in a slight, little stone.  It weighs 10.08 carats and needed every bit of it to make the gemstone beautiful.


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.
