Open Ends and a fine moderately toned green in an Emerald Cut.#1097

Moderately toned, open ended, green emerald cut This emerald cut has open ends that sparkle. I is eye clean with fine crystal. Iit weighs 2.22 carats.

This nice green emerald cut is trying to reach toward being sea foam.  Its open ends sparkle with a bit yellower green, while the sides try and slide into blue green, but it just does not make it.  It is still beautiful and a nice change from the darker more saturated greens you find in many tourmaline.  The tourmaline is eye clean and weighs 2.22 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.
