This is a beautiful gemstone without visible fault. I would hazard a guess of some kind of orange garnet, if I was pressed to guess, what this gemstone was without knowing. I like this standard round brilliant that weighs 2.32 carats. It’s clean medium rich tone without a dark modified (doesn’t brown out)is just right for this sized stone.
Now I am comparing a tourmaline with a garnet. Both tourmaline and garnet are large families of related species with varying gemological properties. Still garnets have a consistently higher index of refraction than tourmalines so they should be brighter. This is the case, only if they are given a comparable finish and have the same or better cleanliness. With my extra effort in polishing tourmaline, I think that this red orange tourmaline would stand up well in comparison to garnet cut commercially.
