This larger oval at 6.18 carats has areas of pink and yellow green that mix together, more or less, depending on the quality of the "white" viewing light. It is clean and bright and flawless.
This larger round is mostly a medium light pastel pink. The yellow green on the side of girdle is pretty isolated and only really effects the body (green and pink make yellow)of the stone when you peer threw that part of the girdle. Wait. the sky has darken, it is thundering and I doubled checked the stone under an artificial light and I see much more yellow bouncing around the culet. This is just another example of how much the quality of “white” light impacts my inadequate attempts to describe the beauty of tourmaline. Try and make your next tourmaline a personal friend before you get it.
This is a classing mixture of colors from Nigeria. The stone has good crystal and is flawless. It weighs 6.18 carats and is a standard round brilliant.
