This beige is made up of a green and a pink mixed together. The axis of this gemstone are also 90 degrees from normal. All and all a very unusual stone that is clean and bright and weighs 3.26 carats,
Thank goodness I just followed my own advice. Face up I am looking at a rather paler stone with a darker middle and light pastel ends. This means that the c axis which usually goes down the long axis of an oval is 90 degrees out of the expected. I have talked about my insecurities with beige and I wanted to check if the cream to wheat color had a touch of pink to make me fill more secure about beige. As I tilted the stone off face up, there was the pink. But stronger than I expected so I made the plunge. I turned the stone completely over, not really that big a deal, and what did I see, but green around the girdle. Now it is all clear to me. The gemstone is really a closet bi-color that mixes its two hues, a light toned green and a light toned pink together to make a perfect beige. It appears to be eye clean and weighs 3.26 carats. And I thought I would have little to say about this gemstone when I first glanced at it in the tray. But now I even remember the rough which was tumbled polished and really did not give any other options for orienting the gemstone without an unacceptable weight loss. I really did not know how it would come out, but I like it and it has a good story.
