The IceTs have been waiting for this pale bi-color emerald cut.

IceT delight, a very pale toned, pink and cream bicolor, emerald cut This rather thin emerald cut has a light pastel pink half and a cream half. It is eye clean and very bright. The IceT group has already made it one of their leaders. It weighs 2.82 carats.

This long ratio emerald cut has a very soft pastel tone level.  Yet you can still see the difference between the one half of the gem that is pink while the other half is cream.  It is eye clean and a very bright stone.  I was pleased when this gemstone was completed because bicolors can have problems like breaking down between the colors and this is a pretty narrow gemstone.  It weighs 2.82 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.
