Sometimes it is not too bad to be small. I am a standard round brilliant and I am in demand because I am lavender and eye clean. I just wish that the IceT group didn’t think I belonged. I hate being so pale, but at least you can clearly see me being lavender when you try. The color comes from a combination of copper and manganese and is really quite rate in tourmaline, so it is easy to be a droplet of color. I weigh .45 carats.
