Uniform moderate golden yellow droplet.#1043


Really nice yellow with touch of gold droplet. This standard round brilliant is a great addition to the droplets. It has a very nice color and tone level. It is eye clean and weighs .74 carats.

This standard round brilliant does not appear to be dichroic.  It is a really nice yellow with a golden glow that is not easy to get.  Its level of tone is pretty high for a yellow,  when you consider that it is a pretty small gemstone.  Still it is just the right size to a droplet and they are glad for the color.  It weighs in at .74 carats and is eye clean.


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.
