This is not a laid back pink, or one that ever wanted to cloth babies. This Barion Cushion radiates fire right into your face. It is a hot medium rich pink that really takes off in my yellowish light source. It appears to be eye clean and with excellent crystal. I guess I should stop and say that this pink has everything a pink lover would want in a gemstone unless you’re old and set in your ways, like I am and don’t want a newer style cut. I don’t mind new, non traditional cuts as long as they have a valid reason for being different. Most do not have any reason to be, except the desire to be different, in my opinion. Now I will let out a secret. This is Jeff’s (my photographer and friend) favorite gemstone in the collection! It is so easy to photograph this 10.52 carat beauty.
