Rather dull yellow green closed ended emerald cut.#436

Large, closed ended, brownish yellow green emerald cut.  #436 This emerald cut has steeply cut ends and somewhat dulled down brownish yellow green color. Its tone level is close to dark, but it does have a good amount of flash driven color. It weighs 14.28 carats.

This stocky emerald cut has closed ends, but has a good amount of flash.  In the daylight its color definitely has a bronze, brownish cast in the medium dark plus toned, yellow green color.  But this is a gemstone that should be seen in the yellowish light, a twisted florescent light in a yellowish shade.  Its green looses all the dark overtone and it looks like a different gemstone.  It appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal.  It weighs a significant 14.28 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.
