Pink, rolling, rolling, rolling, droplet of color

Great Pink with a bit of an inclusion, droplet of color The pink standard round brilliants keep on rolling threw. This one has all the right moves except for a tinny bit of an inclusion. Still this bright flashy droplet of color joins the outstanding pink group.

This standard round brilliant looks to be a perfect pink at first glance.  It medium dark toned pink is not burdened with an over tone.  It crystal is excellent and I almost gave it an eye clean rating.  But it did flash a bit of inclusion that kept me on the ground.  Still it is a beautiful little stone that will continue to help make a big impression for pinks in the droplets of color.  It weighs 1.01 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.
