PInk Orange droplet of Color#1009


Mostly pink with touch of orange droplet of color This is a color slider between pink and orange depending on the light. It is a good addition to the droplets of color. This standard round brilliant weighs .68 carats.

I was ready to say that this droplet of color is a pure pink with a bit higher level of tone than usual, but then I read the back of the box.  It says that there is a bit of orange in the mixture, so I added it to the color scheme.  I believe myself even if I don’t see it at the moment, so this must be one of those pink/orange sliders that keeps me guessing, depending on the light.  This standard round brilliant weighs .68 carats and can proudly march with the rest of the droplets.



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.
