The only triangular cut in the collection pink.#166

Average medium toned pink in a different triangular cut.#166 This was an experiment and the cut worked fine with this pretty average medium tone level pink. The stone is eye clean and I like it, but I prefer shield cuts. It weighs 1.10 carats.

This triangular stone with the tips cut off is the only time I have made this style of cut.  It is a fine little stone that would need a custom setting because of its shape.  It is eye clean and with a medium tone pink that is pretty average.  It weighs 1.10 carats.  The cut is fine, but I prefer shield cuts.


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.
