This larger pastel yellow shield cut is a milestone in the quest for yellow in tourmaline. And the yellow I speak of must be saturated and without even a touch of green or desaturation problems with brown, This beautifully clean and transparent gem displays a world of yellow in both natural light and my yellowish light source. In fact when I put it in my secret place, next to a miniature florescent light in a yellow shade, the stone blows me away, it is so bright and yellow. I think that I have mentioned that this gemstone is yellow at least a few times, perhaps I am impressed. It weighs an impressive 8.92 carats.
