Lavender pinks have generally not been prized over pinks in tourmaline. I think that it is rather toned down from pink, like its more intense purple red sisters. This oval of medium tone is interesting, as a contrast to the cuprian lavenders, but it is not a particularly exciting color to me. Its level of saturation is not there. Still I am very pleased to have it on board since the collection is an equal opportunity buyer, when it comes to colors that aren’t in yet.
This oval appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal. The feel of the stone reminds me of a pink with purple shades. It is a flashy gemstone and weighs 2.78 carats.
