I really like my lightly toned pastel tourmalines. They aren’t expected from tourmaline and I love to surprise people with their beauty. But they must be kept clean in jewelery because they can not carry the piece by their color alone without flash. Well this fine main line pink has a medium tone that is rich enough to carry a piece of jewelry even when it is flashing less, because it has not been cleaned. (It is amazing how much money is spent on fine gradations in diamonds that no one can tell apart without cleaning often.)
The posted gemstone is eye clean and with fine crystal. Its medium toned, well saturated pink color is flashy. It is not dichroic and weighs 2.36 carats.
