No one should get too blase about well saturated purples in tourmaline. It is rare and always will be rare because the saturation, if not the actual color, is dependent on both copper and manganese chromophores. Manganese is pretty common in tourmaline, but copper is not.
This standard round brilliant is included, as most of the purples are, but is still bright and flashy. It has a medium tone and a very good saturation level unlike most of the iron manganese purples, I have been able to get. The non-copper purples are darken with either gray or brown. This round weighs 1.88 carats and is a choice item even if it is moderately included.
