The use of strawberry for the color of this included standard round brilliant is not my creation. It is used in Afghanistan to label this, always included, extremely hot pink tourmaline. I also was told that it generally comes in larger crystals than the pastel material from Afghanistan. It was also interesting to me that the rough was sawed and not cobbled like normal rough from there. The dealer’s clan had sent a batch to Brazil to be enhanced by radiation, but it was not successful enough to do it again. I have only a couple of pieces and this was custom made for the droplets of color. It weighs .61 carats.
