This .30 carat Dot of Color is a mixture of gold and lighter yellow.
When I first started cutting again after many years away from the craft, I did not spend a lot of money. In tourmaline I went for lots of small material and tried to see how small a gemstone I could cut. In nearly all cases this “small effort” was a standard round brilliant.
The gem in the box I am holding is too small to be a droplet and came from a fairly good sized lot of minus 1 gram pieces of rough that I cut off and on for years. On a stone this size the meets are all met by polishing and if the stone does not fall of the dop, it does not take too long to cut. All of them have good clarity and color or I would not have cut them. The posted dot of color weighs .30 carats.
