This oval has a good medium pastel blue color and is clean with good crystal. It is a good size at 1.51 carats for a beautiful ring.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with with bright, flashy medium pastel blue oval. It is not noticeably dichroic and it has great transparency, without a flaw in the sky. So why does it leave me rather cold. It really needs a good old fashion incandescent to give it life. I morn the passing of incandescent light with its power to energize some colors. Both blue and green tourmaline can get a real boost from the yellow glow. So I recommend that anyone interested in the beautiful world of tourmaline color , be sure to squirrel away some incandescent light bulbs and at least one fixture (use them to view tourmaline) to keep seeing tourmaline in all its glory. This oval weights 1.51 carats and has a three step crown. I put an extra row of facets on the crown, because this is a nice dainty stone.
