The market for anything decent in rough tourmaline is tough. Even pinks and greens that are pretty ordinary are demanding much higher prices. In order to keep cutting I have just about clean out my inventory of rough. The posted standard round brilliant is the type of stone that has been waiting a long time to be cut. This is not because the bright pink round lacks eye appeal. It is just that the color is common and the body small and slightly included. There were always higher mountains to climb, but now the work is done and this medium light toned stone weighs .43 carats.
