So many varieties of peaches, round.#522

Faintly include medium toned peach without brown problems, round. This medium tone peach is a nice bright stone that is faintly included. It color seems stable and it weighs 2.72 carats. A bit of eye candy.

I can see that the person who put this collection together is drawn toward peach to orange tourmaline.  The posted round is faintly included and with its medium pastel peach color you would notice any inclusions.  It is a bright and flashy piece of eye candy that does not have any problems with brown.  It is so different from the traditional dravite and their browned yet still orange spirit.  Of course this is not the only varieties of peaches you will find hanging on the branches of this collection.  We have well saturate oranges and color changers from pink to peach so the peach cobbler of tourmaline is a rich dish and hard for me to keep straight sometimes.  The posted gem weighs 2.72 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.
