Pink to red in tourmaline comes in the full array of shades probably only matched by lipstick colors. I hope to use my spectrometer to get a better understanding of its nuances. This darker, raspberry pink has just a touch of purple and a medium dark tone level. It is oriented with its table perpendicular to the principle (c), which can be seen from its uniform darker tone level, that is richer than the pavilion’s medium tone level. It appears to be eye clean, but has only a moderate amount of flash and is not eye candy. It weighs 1.45 carats.
