Small sea foam, but still a sea foam droplet

Beautiful seafoam with one spot of an inclusion, droplet of color. This is a beautiful standard round brilliant. It grabs your eye with its bright sea foam color. It is pure except for a tiny inclusion. It weighs .67 and did not have a doubt about making the droplets of color parade.

This standard round brilliant is eye clean except for a tiny flash that is unimportant to the beauty of this top grade sea foam.  The tone is a.little light for such a small droplet, but it still sparkles.  It weighs .67 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.
