A unique gemstone in this collection must have a interesting story. I cut away a good part of this oval’s story, when I preformed this oval. It had been a rather flat section of a watermelon tourmaline with a pastel pink center and a blue rind. (It must have been a cold watermelon) The rind was uneven as usual and I had to tried hard to position my oval so that I would get equal amount of blue on both sides of the center. As the work progressed it was hard to tell if I had been successful, but the stone now speaks for itself.
It is an eye clean oval with fine crystal. A fine lightly toned blue end flows into a pink cent that then is relieved into the other blue end of equal intensity to the first blue end. The unusual bicolor is flashy and bright It weighs .75 carats and is confirmed as a unique example of this color distribution in the collection.
