This is the type of red/pink tourmaline where it depends on the size of the gemstone, whether it is red or pink. A one carat size stone would certainly be a rich pink while a 10 carat size would be red, but so dark that you could hardly get any flash out of it. This 3.33 carat sized standard round brilliant is just big enough to be red and still be a nice medium dark toned flasher. It has some light inclusions that can only really be seen from the pavilion. Red or rich pink it is an attractive stone.
