Pink is Pink droplet of color

Nice clean pink droplet of color. A great common hue for tourmaline is pink. This standard round brilliant is a nice medium dark toned pink and eye clean. It weighs .72 carats.

When is a pink, a hot pink or just a pink.  Well I’m in the middle of a tray of droplets of color and I have to read what I put on the back of boxes at different times over the years.  This standard round brilliant is just labeled pink and the only difference I can see from some I just saw labeled hot pink is a little bit deeper tone level.  Their hues (color) are the same.  Still this beautiful droplet of color is a bit more restrained than hot pink and she has been blessed with a eye clean purity.  She weighs .72 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.
