Visibly included bright medium pink, round.#706

Visibly included,  bright, hot medium toned pink, round. This is the most included pink I have posted in awhile . It is more like the traditional Brazilian hot pinks with many unavoidable inclusions. It is still a worthwhile gemstone. It weighs 2.54 carats.

This standard round brilliant is visibly included.  The round looks rather like how I remember the pinks coming from Brazil years ago.  Still a decent stone, but with so many inclusion that there was no hope of cutting a clean stone.  Brazil had had a large find of pink included material and it had even found its way, as tumbled stones, into costume jewelery.  At the time it was considered most exceptional that so much pink was available.  Now I think that pink is the most common color in high quality faceting rough coming out of Africa.

The inclusions do impact the flash of this round, but the color is a bright hot pink that makes up for the inclusions.  It is eye candy and weighs 2.54 carats.  It is definitely a worthwhile stone.


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.
