The half carat rich pink emerald cut tourmaline is bright and clean and a fine smaller stone.
I try and mix in smaller gemstones in between larger efforts. It kind of relieves the tension of polishing facets that are large enough to both make polishing a physical effort, since I work on a stationary lap when I polish and technically demanding. This small emerald cut is an example of the kind of joy I can sometimes get out of a pretty average piece of rough. It is clean and bright with a good crisp pink of fine saturation and tone level. It would be great in a nice ring, if its someone would respect it and take care of it, for a lifetime. It weighs .53 carats.
