Hi Barbra,

Thank you for posting and sharing with us the Bruce Fry Tourmaline collection page that you are working on.
It is truly wonderful and depicts so well the range of colors of tourmalines.
So impressive indeed. Wow!!!!

I was peeking at the "recent changes" page of the GP and saw Barbra uploading the pics, so I had a preview while she was uploading... When you read the word "tourmaline" how could you resist? :)
Fantastic pieces (and nice photos too...). Looking forward for the descriptions!

EDIT: and she's still uploading new pics! :!:

Great stuff.
Bruce sent me a CD. All the pics had to be reformatted which is taking me some time, but I'll get them all up.....eventually.

Wow, what a collection! And they all seem to be custom faceting work too -- not a window to be seen. Thanks for posting this -- well done.
