Part of the lot of Namibia blue dots of color#1151

Bright sparkling,  Namibian blue, dot of color. This is a very pretty little standard round brilliant. It has a great blue color and medium tone level. It weighs .25 carats and is from Namibia.

Small rounds are fun to cut, but you work for what you get.  There are not too many colors that I would push a round down this small, but a great medium toned blue, like this dot of color, is worth the effort.  It weighs .25 carats and likes to flash out its name.  From Namibia off course.  Unfortunately I had stability problems with this material and it maybe too fragile to set. The stone itself is include.


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.
