This oval is not made of top grade Namibian blue. But when you’re looking for “different” tourmaline with distinction, you don’t always go for the best. This oval lacks the tone level of the best, but its color is pretty close to some of the best. I would call it watery rather than a pastel. It is open and crisp and with good crystal. It appears to be eye clean. I probably use the adjective “bright” too much, but my effort in polishing combined with the right angles makes bright stones like this one. I weighs 1.36 carats and would make a nice dainty ring stone.
