I wish that I could get the rough for this medium dark toned, pink oval at a reasonable price today. It is just a beautiful ring sized stone that has all the right gemological properties. It is even eye clean, which exceeds the expectation for cleanliness that the GIA used when it graded pinks to reds in tourmalines as normally included. I think that the grading really goes back to when Brazil was the predominant source of tourmaline in the world. Their reds were never that clean. I don’t believe that Brazil is dominant today because almost all of their surface deposits have been exploited. This beautiful gemstone weighs 1.79 carats.
