I posted this stone along with two others in a earlier post called “Red is not enough”. I was looking at all three stones under both a yellowish florescent light or an incandescent at the times. I waited to do this post until I could check this oval under normal daylight conditions. The stones color has turn more of a melon color with less saturation and an orange overtone. It certainly did not respond to the light change like the Rubellite or brown red like I wrote about in “Red is not enough“. Nomenclature will always be a problem with tourmaline because it is so complex.
This medium tone pink/red has an orange overtone. It appears to be eye clean and with fine crystal. It is in the family of color changers to shifter that makes orange to red evaluations difficult sometimes. It weighs 2.10 carats.
