When it comes to cuprian tourmaline with a great pinkish purple color, I am very forgiving with cleanliness, but in this case I don’t really have to be. It has a moderate tone level, which is beautifully complemented by just having a small amount of inclusions. This combination makes a smaller stone like this, exceptional good. I don’t think that this gemstone was heat treated because it is purple and I cut it. Purples have been partial heat treated to reduce the level of red and tone in some dark tourmaline from Mozambique. This beauty weighs 1.33 carats.
