This is a pink that is almost too rich and powerful for a simple shield cut.#177

Darkly toned and powerful pink shield cut.  #177 This shield cut is eye clean and has a rich darker tone that is not dense. It likes being a power pink and does not strive to be a red. It weighs 3.02 carats.

Their are wonderfully flighty and flirtatious pinks in the world and then there are powerful pinks that let you know who is boss.  This eye clean, rich and powerful shield cut is quite a warrior.  Her sultry, darkly toned recesses seize with mysterious intrigue.  Without spying on her too closely, I would say that this is a wonder piece of tourmaline heaven.  She weighs a previously undisclosed and confidential 3.02 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.
