Slightly included pastel peach emerald cut

Slightly included pastel peach emerald cut This deeply cut pastel peach emerald cut is bright. It looks eye clean under the table, but has some minor flaws on one of the long sides of the gem. The stone is not dichroic and weighs 2.82 carats.

This pastel peach emerald cut has a full set of facets with four steps on the pavilion and three steps on the crown.  This helps enhance the amount of scintillation an emerald cut can produce and potentially makes the gemstone deeper.  The gemstone does have some minor inclusions that are not noticeable from looking face up at the table. The color is uniform because the tourmaline is not dichroic.  It has fine crystal and weighs 2.82 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.
