Peach with a pink shadow, dichroic emerald cut.#1116

Nice peach with a pink shadow emerald cut. This emerald cut appears to be eye clean and has fine crystal. It is dichroic and has darker ends. Its peach with a pink shadow color is medium toned. It weighs 2.40 carats.

This is a classic tourmaline gem.  An emerald cut with richer ends and a blend of two colors peach and pink.  I confess that I would cut emerald cuts even if the rough wasn’t ideally suited for them, at times, because I like them.  This gemstone has the cleanliness and the crystal to make great use out its pastel colors.  The emerald cut weighs 2.40 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.
