Well it is time to let you see the difference or not between two similar colors. One is the classic lavender of copper in tourmaline from Mozambique. It is the first image and is a round. The second is the subject of this post and is a eye clean emerald cut from Madagascar. I always have a difficulty with describing the emerald cut’s color because something is toning down the lavender. I think it is a touch of brown. (I called another similar gem dusty purple for lack of a better color name).
I have great interest in purple with our without copper, so I try and get what I can. I don’t think I will ever be overwhelm with purples. The emerald cut may not have the saturation (purity of color) the coppers have, but it is always welcome. This emerald cut weighs 1.,62 carats.
