Peachy Pink Pride in a smaller Oval

pastel peach pink eye clean oval. This pastel oval has a soft pastel peach to pink look. It appears to be eye clean and bright. It weighs 1.12 carats.

Peachy pink or pinky peach is all in the lighting.  This oval has a crisp clean look because it does not appear to be dichroic.  It also appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal.  Its tone level is medium light which is about one step above being an IceT (very pale tourmaline) pledge.  It weighs 1.12 carats and looks best in bright diffused lighting, like most pastels.


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.
