The green green grass of home, droplet of color#618

A great grass green to love, droplet of color  #618 This standard round brilliant has everything right and a green color in a medium tone level that is match for any tourmaline in the collection. It weighs 1.48 carats and is a droplet of color.

I was not born to grow great grass at home or anywhere else.  Still I was fortunate to cut a piece of rough that produced this exceptional, green as grass, green.  I think that this standard round brilliant can stand toe to toe with any green in the collection in its medium tone level.  Nothing can be seen about it , but bright,eye clean, flash and such a green.  It weighs 1.48 carats and the droplets have grass stains from trying to please it.


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.
