Small, but potent sea foam droplet of color.#725

A top quality sea foam droplet of color. This top quality sea foam standard round brilliant is from Afghanistan. Even though it is smaller it still stands out. It is eye clean and has fine crystal. It weighs .47 carats.

This bit of a standard round brilliant was sliced off one of the high quality sea foam pieces I got from Afghanistan.  It appears to be on the bluer side of sea foam and has enough tone value to be a fine droplet of color.  It weighs .47 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.
