No matter how I look at this orange round it is orange. And orange is not a common color in tourmaline. It is a bit on the fruity side and I like to think of a nice cantaloupe rather than peach(yellower) with this one. It has a clearly visible feather that runs under 1/3 of the table. It does not flash out its existence and in a rare color, you do what you have to do to make a gemstone. The gemstone’s crystal is very good and since the flaw is pretty well limited to one feather it is still nice and bright and flashy.
This round has a standard pavilion, but an extra deep crown. The crown is a modified step cut that I find makes a nice bright stone and helps me to try a retain as much color in lightly color gemstones as possible. (To get the deepest gemstones I make a split horizontal main pavilion along with this crown.) The gemstone ended up having a very nice tone level. The deep round weighs in at 5.64 carats
