This included saturated yellow is such a joy. round

A great saturate yellow that is lightly included, round This standard round brilliant is a joy of saturated yellow. I can easily forgive its lightly included body that is still bright and flashy. It has a moderately rich tone level and weighs 1.91 carats.

If purples seduce me into purchasing rough that is more included than I usually get in more commercial colors, then saturated yellow searches me out and demands action.  This standard round brilliant is not laid back or a wall flower.  It may not have the best crystal and have many tiny inclusions, but it is a proud stone.  It came in one of the two water worn pebbles that I bought very early, on the inter net.  I have never been able to get such a saturated yellow since.  There is not even a hint of green in this flashy round.  It weighs 1.91 carats and is proud to be a beacon for the rest of the collection.


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.
