Slightly graded color in a slightly included, dichroic, peach emerald cut.#517

Slightly included, dichroic peach emerald cut. This piece of eye candy is a great fun stone. Its ends are a dark redder peach and the inclusions don't impact the beauty of the gemstone. It weighs 1.14 carats.

The title of this post says a lot.  With all of it, the bottom line is, it is a pity that I don’t have more peaches like this one.  The darker c axis ends are redder than the middle.  The flaws are so light that they don’t even bother an emerald cut, which is saying a lot.  It is just a bright happy gem that is a pieces of eye candy to me.  It weighs 1.14 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.
