I was once reading a list of tourmaline color published by the Gem Institute of America (GIA). It did not list gray. I can see why they would over look it, but I love a good solid gray and this is one of them. It is a standard round brilliant and it is included, but that takes little away from this gemstone. Again the best part of its color is that it really is a medium toned gray and not an add on to blue or purple etc.and that is not common. It weighs 1.22 carats and the droplets love him, because he goes along with everything.
