A great effort is sometimes made not to put gray into the color name of a gemstone, but the fact is that many blues and other colors have a gray over tone in tourmaline. Calling a gemstone steely is a favorite way around the desire to give a good description of a gemstone without using gray. Now I like grays, but it does take the edge off the posted gemstone which has to be respected as a dark and silent type. There is flash in this darker toned shield cut, but it needs decent light and a personal touch to appreciate it. It weighs 1.30 carats.
