I have lauded yellows that are well saturated without green and problems with their purity of color that lead to browns. Well this oval can not escape a touch of green and low saturation (purity of color) that leads to browning. This is compounded by the tourmaline being dichroic and the moderately toned gemstones overall impression is of a rather pale browned honey color. It appears to be eye clean and with good crystal. It weighs 2.95 carats.
