Outstanding Blue Green Droplet of color.#1027


Great Blue Green Round This very bright blue green round standard brilliant. is exceptional. It is eye clean and with excellent crystal.

It is nice to run into an outstanding stone that should have been remembered, but wasn’t.  At 1.67 carats this standard round brilliant will make a fine droplet.   It is very bright and really loves yellowish light as most blue to green tourmaline do.  In this case the green part of the stone is accentuated and you approach a blued “chrome” tourmaline’s  visual impact.  I have to admit that I am a blue tourmaline person, along with other saturated colors, and tinting blue with green to make teal is not my favorite way to go.  This exceptional round transcends teal and deserves to be seen up front and personal.  The stone is eye clean with great crystal.


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.
