When I came to this small round that was cut years ago, it made me pause. I have written golden green on the back of its storage box ,but I am seeing a more complex picture than that. This standard round brilliant is strongly dichroic. It has a very strong brown principle axis and at best a medium toned green axis. The table of the stone is cut parallel to the principle (c) axis and that should lead to four alternating slices of pie shaped areas of dichroic color. But the brown color has such a high tone level that the poor lowly green color can barely be seen face up, as an area of paler brown. You can really only see the green a/b axis color when you tilt the round at about 45 degrees to the table. Then the green will flash at you as you rotate the stone. So this piece of rich chocolate brown tourmaline appears to be eye clean, needs decent light to speak its color and weighs 1.71 carats. It is still a rather solitary soul that feels it is still misunderstood by most of the world.
