Pure Yellow Droplet of Color#973


Pure Yellow Droplet This moderately included yellow droplet is welcomed for its color. To put it another way, it fits right in with best droplets and the inclusion do not bother me in such a small stone. It weighs .76 carats.

This flashy pure yellow droplet is not clean.  But it is so nice that I actually tried to have it set in custom jewelery years ago.  The first piece of jewelery was so expensive that I had to drop the rest of the order and take back my stones.  Small round tourmalines  that have a standard brilliant cut do not need custom settings, but they certainly add beauty to any piece of gold or silver work.  This stone weighs .76 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.
