Small pale peach oval#257

Smaller delicate peach oval This peach is just a bit off pink and that help make it a delicate, lightly toned, little beauty. It appears to be eye clean and has a nice bright personality. It weighs .82 carats.

Peach that is some level of pastel seems to be the twin of pink in tourmaline.  It generally has the same problems and strengths as its more appreciated sibling.  This pale peach oval could be easily mistaken for a pink under some lights, but if you compare it with a pink that has  a better level of saturation the truth comes out.  This is a pretty little oval that has fine properties.  It weighs .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.
