This blue to green, lighter and brighter, emerald cut is very nice.

Blue to green medium toned emerald cut This emerald cut has a very nice medium tone level. It color shifts from a fine watery blue to a greenish blue under different white lights. It appears to be eye clean and weighs 1.53 carats.

This emerald cut has a different feel to it than many of the smaller ones I have been cutting in the blue/green range of colors.  Its ends are darker, but I don’t think that they are closed.  The color goes from a fine rather watery blue under natural light to a fine lightly greenish, blue under my yellow light source.  All of the color is worked out in a medium tone level that is in the center of the stone.  This flashy, for an emerald cut, stone weighs 1.53 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.
