This good sized oval at 7.11 carats is eye clean and has great crystal (very transparent body). Its pastel color and tone level is probably the most common combination coming out of Africa at the moment (2013). Medium pastel pink tourmaline is one of the easiest colors for me to polish and I see only one disappointment with the stone. It has some minor chipping on its keel. It is a problem that I have with some tourmaline with some cuts. I find pinks can be prone to it. I believe that the natural radiation, that probably contributed to the pink color, also damaged the crystal structure. With darker tone levels and less purity, the minor chipping would not be as noticeable (I this case I am looking for it), but even with this gemstone it does not reduce the beauty of the piece in the real world..
