Purple pinks are not rare and I find that the purple cast tends to make them less vibrant. This is the case with this oval. It has a good tone level of medium dark and is eye clean with good crystal, but it just does not spring to life like the pinks. Now I am talking about purple reds that are not cuprian. I find cuprian purple reds to be very exciting and you will be reading about them in other posts. (if you want to) This oval weights 2.98 carats.
