Scattered, light inclusions in a pale lemon droplet of color.#502

An included bright lemon with touch of green droplet of color This is a nice citrus yellow with a touch of green. It has a web of inclusions, but is still bright and flashy. It weighs .74 carats and is well suited for the droplets of color.

This smaller standard round brilliant looks like the medicine I use to take to help with a sore throat.  The light lemony with just a touch of green color has scattered inclusions that aren’t too dense.  Its flash is impacted by the inclusions, but it is still bright and fun.  It weighs .74 carats and the droplets can always use a bit of medicine.


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.
