Very slight included, really great pink, Barion cushion cut.

Very Slightly Included medium toned pink Barion cut. This Barion cushion cut is a beautiful medium tone pink. It has everything you would want in a pink gem except for a tiny flaw in one of the corner. It weighs 4.94 carats.

I thought I had a GEM (highest quality gemstone) on my hands with this out standing pink Barion cushion cut, but it does  have a tiny flaw in one corner.   If you have read many of my posts, you would probably guess that I am going to say that the flaw makes no difference in the beauty of the gemstone.  In this case that is absolutely true.  In fact, as I have search for as many colors as I could get in tourmaline, I have become more tolerant of inclusions and it is not just because of availability and cost.  Most tourmalines are flawed and still beautiful.  You should grow to accept non detracting flaws as part of the game with natural gemstones.  Seek the deeper beauty and be positive about what the stone can give in beauty ,rather than detract from the excitement of the color.This exciting medium toned pink weighs 4.49 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.
