It is amazing to me how much being “in” can matter when it comes to price. I truly love cuprian tourmaline, but only stones with higher quality colors should warrant a big differential in price. (in my opinion) When I got the rough for this standard round brilliant that is peppered with little inclusions, I had difficulty in seeing any indications of it being copper bearing. After finishing the stone, I can see just a hint of purple, but that along with my spectrometer says copper. So it joins the dots of color as a uniquely timid example of the influence of copper on a lightly toned pink. The cute round weighs .41 carats.
