Slightly included, medium toned, bright pink oval#265

Included medium pink, medium toned oval The inclusions in this fine oink oval is toward one end and really doesn't bother the stone face up. It is as bright and flashy as any pink and that is saying a lot. It weighs 2.49 carats.

This oval has a slight inclusion toward one end of the oval.  It is close to the girdle and does not effect the beauty of the gemstone.  I think that the tourmaline is slightly dichroic, with a slightly darker pink in the ends.  Outside of the small inclusions at one end the gemstone has fine crystal and is as bright and flashy as any pink.  It weighs 2.49 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.
