The rough, for this standard round brilliant, was probably heated to lighten its original dark reddish purple color. The heating gradually reduces the reddish component in the color. This medium toned, lavender pink round is eye clean and with fine crystal. The reddish purple variety of tourmaline was the only truly clean material that was found at Mavuco in Mozambique, when mining started there. This beautiful and rare round weighs 4.12 carats.
