Rich pink that is a Rose by the judgement of the droplets of color.

A rich pink that is a rose, droplet of color. This slightly purplish pink, is a rose to me. It is slightly included with below average crystal that leads to a toned down stone. It is still acceptable to the droplets of color. It weighs 1.09 carats.

This standard round brilliant is slightly included.  I has a rich pink that I would call rose, because it has a touch of purple  in it.  As usual the purple pinks are not as flashy as the rest of the pinks in my book.  I think it is the quality of the crystal rather than the modest inclusions that tones down the round.  The droplets are happy to overlook any faults for the color.  The rose weighs 1.09 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.
