Included, medium, pastel sky blue round.  #649 This standard round brilliant is hazy from a lower grade crystal cause my numerous faint flaws. Its medium sky blue color is easy on the eye. It weighs .70 carats and is a sure bet for being a droplet of color.

This sky blue round is a bit restricted by many faint inclusions that add up to a low quality crystal.  Still if you keep it moving, it will flash you a nice smile.  It has a medium light pastel look that leaves a gentle touch on the eye.  It weighs .70 and rose with the sun to be a droplet of color.


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.
