This oval has as long a ratio of the length to the width (1.5 times) that I cut. The oval cut that I use,which is a lazy oval meet point design, although I don’t cut it in a completely meet point fashion, produces bright sparkly ends on either side of a reflective pool of color. This piece of hot pink shows the effect beautifully since it is exceptional clean for this color of tourmaline. (During my inspection I found that a bit of material did chip off one side of the pavilion close to the culet when I removed the stone from the epoxy. It just goes to show you how fragile hot pinks can be in tourmaline and how flash can make some problems very hard to see face up). This beautiful, medium toned, non-dichroic, hot pink gemstone weighs 2.32 carats.
