This standard round brilliant is typical of the type of cuprian tourmaline that became available after the world was introduced to its beauty. About half of it is clean and flashy while the rest is so included that it obstructs the flash. The medium tone level purple color is very nice and if you wanted to reduce the interference from the flaws you could treat the stone. But I don”t treat any of my gemstone to any degree. I don’t really have a problem with treating gemstones as long as it is stated that they have been treated. This exceptional purple colored round weighs 2.30 carats.
