Now what does it take to be a fine dot of color besides a determinative size? The rich enough tone level to be seen and a fine color. This standard round brilliant has both and has been accepted. ( Since I have never make any other cut than a standard round brilliant, small enough to be a dot of color, I left it out of the discussion)
This dot is pretty large at .38 carats, but it won’t push its weigh around. The dots of color are always pleased to get a new member, because even with the tourmaline rough shortage, I don’t cut many of them.
