Pale citrus yellow without green emerald cut from Brazil

Included pale citrus yellow, without green emerald cut. This emerald cut was made for its pale citrus yellow without green color. It is flawed right down the middle of the emerald cut, but it still has a bit of beauty. It weighs 1.15 color.

When I started cutting gemstones again after a long hiatus, I bought only small material.  The first dealers I worked with on the internet were really junk deals.  The posted citrus yellow emerald cut was an attempt to get something decent out of a lot of small included material from Brazil.  The stones tone value makes it eligible to be an IceT member, but I do like its clean yellow pastel color.  It has a white non-flashing flaw right down the long dimension of the emerald cut, but the stone still has its color and a bit of beauty.  I have never gotten material quite like it again.  The gemstone weighs 1.15 carats and is an IceT member.


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.
