This is a great red tourmaline. It has the color and still has a medium dark tone level that is not too dense to flash and sparkle. This is nice and rare, Between the flash and the medium dark tone level the flaws that are on the pavilion are not visible by my eye. This is helped by the stone nice size of 6.69 carats. At time I wish that I could compare a stone like this with the best that Brazil has produced.
