Snappy meium toned yellow with slight touch of orange emerald cut

Bright yellow eye candy with orange shadow, emerald cut. I like this nice sized emerald cut. It is yellow eye candy with a touch of orange. It appears to be eye clean, with fine crystal. The touch of orange comes in because it is dichroic. It weighs 2.34 carats.

This is how a yellow should look, like eye candy.  And this emerald cut is just that, but it can not claim the yellow honors completely, because it has a touch of the orange roaming around.  The orange comes into play because the stone is slightly dichroic.  To be eye candy, you just have to have great crystal and no eye visible inclusions, right?.  Well not really, but it helps and this gemstones is gifted in both properties.  I guess I will confess that I like this smaller emerald cut with a body of yellow, shadowed by a bit of orange.  It weighs 2.34 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.
