When does a pastel orange become a peach, round.#1085


Orange to peach pastel round Nice pleasant shade of orange in a lightly toned standard round brilliant. It is eye clean and weighs 2.22 carats.

It is a pity that this stone can speak.  Pastels are so shy that they have difficulty showing their true colors, so I have to wobble around.  I like pastel orange for this standard round brilliant, but most people would probably call it a peach.  Either way you slice it, the stone is bright and flashy like clean, flawless pastels should be.  It weighs 2.22 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.
