Slightly included medium forest green, oval#728

Slightly flawed forest green oval. There is a slight flaw next to the girdle in this otherwise flawless gem. There is a touch of blue in its forest green. It is at most slightly dichroic. It weighs 1.15 carats.

I think that this medium toned forest green oval has just a touch of blue.  It has a slight flaw close to the  girdle, but it should not weaken the stone.  The rest of the gem is eye clean with fine crystal.  It is always nice to have an open green that can be either an oval or round after so many emerald cuts in the collection. The openest comes from being only slightly dichroic. It weighs 1.15 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.
