Slightly included pastel pink round

Nice medium lightly toned pink round. This standard round brilliant has a bit of a flaw that is not visible face up. It has a medium light tone and a pastel pink that could be called a baby pink. It weighs 1.77 carats.

The best way to find an inclusion is to turn the stone over and look at it threw its pavilion.  That way your eye doesn’t get distracted by the flash.  In this stone the inclusion is very minor and I did not see it face up.   The standard round brilliant has a fine medium light pink color that could be call a baby pink.  It weighs 1.77 carats and is flashy.


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.
