All this orange tourmaline ever wanted to be was orange. It doesn’t go for brown outs and would never shift its gears and become a red. It is mildly dichroic at most. The icing on the cake is a nice medium pastel tone level and an eye clean body. If there is something wrong with this gemstone I don’t know about it and it is so far from being a lowly valued brown orange dravite, that it should have a different name.
