This very pale pastel is very clean and bright and has a color that is just a hint of something. I am sure that some people would say the color drifts into pink, but it is not a pure pink so I will stay with peach. It rather reminds me of a kunzite that I never finished. It was given to me by the inventor of my faceter (Mr Shaw) and he was cutting it while I took a couple of lessons from him. I had to take the lessons or my mother would not permit me to by my first machine. It took everything I had. Well kunzite is not the easiest material to cut and Mr. Shaw was too involved to pay me much attention to me, still it satisfied my mother and so they say, the rest is history.
A simple three step crown helps make this (5.77 carat) oval bright and since I am trying to bring some order to my collection, I would say that it falls into the category of IceT. A category that contains all the very pale pastels. Tourmaline is exceptional, in not just its color range, but in its exceptionally levels of tone in so many colors.
