You have to be careful when you try and figure out the color of a lightly color tourmaline. That pastel might just be picking up all the colors of the world. When Jeff, my friend and photographer, started taking pictures of the collection, I had to buy a white box for him. A white box is an enclosure with its own lights that is white and has openings in it for a camera. It is used to isolate the object you’re trying to photograph from all the colors of the world.
Well it took a moment for me to settle in with this standard round brilliant before the cream started to flow out. I love cream and it is a much rarer color in tourmaline than you might think. This round floats on the edge of Achroite, colorless tourmaline, but never crosses the line. (It did come to the attention of the IceT company and is a new member.) It is eye clean and with great crystal. It weighs 2.45 carats.
