This standard round brilliant is a welcome guest because it is pastel purple without copper content. One of the complexities of color in tourmaline is the production of similar if not exactly the same color by different chromophores. In this the case the stone is probably colored by iron and manganese. It sells it self with an eye clean flash and good crystal. It is not there in saturation when compared to copper colored purple tourmaline. It weighs 1.01 carats and a very welcome addition to the droplets of color that prize different paths to greatness.
