Very Pale Yellow to Green, victim of wishful thinking round. (IceT for sure)#530

Very Pale Pastel Yellow Green Round. IceT for sure This standard round brilliant is so pale that the question of yellow or green dominance was resolved as a very pale pastel yellow green that is eye clean and with fine crystal. It weighs 1.75 carats.

Now the IceT party is ready to party hard with this standard round brilliant no mater what official color I come up with.  In the morning light I see a very pale green, but there is yellow on the box.  So, as a compromise, which I just saw in the stone as the sun rises higher in the sky, the round is officially a very pale pastel yellow green that is eye clean and with fine crystal.  Let the fun begin with a gemstone that will be seen differently by different people and/or under different lighting conditions, I bet.  It weighs 1.75 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.
