One of my other hobbies is working in the garden and working in the garden to me is getting into dirt. The color, smell and feel of a rich topsoil can be very satisfying. So perhaps this is why I like brown. It goes with everything and it can kind of grow on you.
This brown tourmaline is cut in a Barion cushion and that mixes the two dichroic colors of a lighter tan and honey brown together very well. This makes an exciting stone that seems to radiate flash. I certainly would not want to cut a smaller gemstone than this size (1.24 carats) because the facets would be too small and the work unrewarding.
I will leave brown behind and dravite and call its color butterscotch. It is eye clean and with excellent crystal. But best of all for a brown, neither dichroic color is greenish or too dense.
