The votes have been counted and this is a hot pink droplet of color.#636

One order of pure hot pink to go, droplets of color.  #636 This standard round brilliant delivers just what was on the menu. It is pure hot pink with a medium order of tone on the side. It is flawless and weighs, 1.46 carats, In the pink for the droplets of color.

I have enough pinks in the tray of fifty I am working on to begin to compare what I have written on the back of the droplets storage boxes.  I am really not that consistent.  It probably has to do with the lighting and how tired I am when I brand some poor tourmaline as a plain Jane.

Well this standard round brilliant pink just got upgraded to hot.  It has a beautifully medium tone with fine crystal.  And it certainly may have come from Nigeria since it is flawless. It weighs 1.46 carats and keeps rolling along into the droplets of color nest.


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.
