This pastel oval is in the pink and should be babied.#1113

Nice pastel baby pink, eye clean oval. This oval is very bright and a good size. Its baby pink color has a good saturation level. The gemstone weighs 2.09 carats and is big enough to retain its color even when moderately soiled in jewelery.

This medium lightly toned baby pink oval is a nice size.  It appears to be eye clean and has fine crystal.  Now all this could indicate a gemstone from Afghanistan or Nigeria, but that can not be proven by its look,  because this is a pretty common set of color and cleanliness from many deposits around the world.  Problems with feathers and inclusions are more common with darker toned pink gemstones.  This bright flashy oval weighs 2.09 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.
