This is a pretty average stone for my collection. It is a very nice bright even hot pink that is clean and weighs 2.28 carats. It would be a droplet of color, if I really needed the color in the group, but I don’t and it is on the big side. I consider this more of a ring sized gemstone. I am proud to have worked to make this rather average gem in my collection a much better than an average gem in the wider world of the trade. Every gemstone in the collection, I cut and the best polish I can get, after years of work, is put on every tourmaline. Polish is the name of the game (along with appropriate angles).
