Pink Purple Emerald cut nice tone#949


Rich pink purple emerald cut This bright rich emerald cut has a very uniform color and a tone level that is very good for a pink purple. It has a few bright flakes deep in the gemstone that are eye visible, but not distracting.

This good sized ring stone at 3.68 carats is a fine bright, but sultry pink purple.  I see a couple of flecks deep in the stone by eye, but they are not detracting and the stone has a very clean look.  What I like about this rather stocky emerald cut is that its color is remarkably consistent and its tone level for a pink purple is very good.  I accentuate the point about tone level in pink purples, because I have found that pink purples tend to be overly dark.  This gemstone is certainly not a pastel, but a rich glowing stone that has a rich ruby-like quality about it.



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.
