Very pale peach emerald easy choice for IceT development#536

Very pale peach emerald cut, for the IceT group This very pale emerald cut has barely a visible color. But the IceT group will take the peach ice in. The stone is eye clean and with fine crystal. It weighs 3.59 carats.

This is one of those tourmaline that you would think is anything, but a tourmaline.  Its tone level is very low and the stones crystal is flawless.  It is not dichroic and actually looks like some inexpensive topaz I had years ago.  It weighs 3.59 carats of peach ice, that is set to be mounted with the IceT foundation.


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.
