This round was not permitted into the collection for many years because of its heavy inclusions. I had purchased the rough from Brazil when I started cutting again and loved the color, but couldn’t really cut a clean stone. The standard round brilliant was the best I could do with the pinks, (the lot also had minty green and a fine pale yellow without green) and now I keep the round in the collection for its color and to remember the beginning of my quest for color in tourmaline. It weighs . 79 carats and is one with the droplets of color because they remember too.
