Smaller richer golden oval.#269

Darker golden oval with moderate flash This oval has a nice rich golden color that is stable, no browns here. It has a moderate flash and appears to be eye clean. It weighs .90 carats.

This oval maybe on the small side for me to cut, but it has a rich golden color that flashes to a moderate degree.  It is cut with the c axis perpendicular to the table and has a nice even color.  It would make a great delicate ring.  It weighs .90 carats and appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal.


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.
