Steep ends and blue green color, emerald cut, trooper.

Smaller, blue green, emerald cut with steep ends. This blue green emerald cut is the type of work I play with between larger more important gemstones. It is still a little beauty that is eye clean and flashy. It weighs in at 1.38 carats.

My collection needs troops like this eye clean, blue green, emerald cut, in significant numbers.  They bring beauty into the world, in an affordable way and let me keep cutting.  They vary in color between blue and yellow green and have a pretty clean record.  They don’t take issue to their steeply cut ends and are always flashy in a dark sort of way.  This one weighs in at 1.38 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.
