Being dichroic has its ups and downs with tourmaline. Dark ends can be an effort and pinks can loose their heat with a browned a/b axis color etc. But then you can hit a home run and actually get around the bases with a beautiful dichroic gemstone.
This emerald cut is a really fun stone. It is strongly dichroic and the c axis is a nice, not too dark, pink while the a/b axis does contrast nicely with a bright, toned down pastel pink. The emerald cut is rather short and stocky, so the c axis color really dominates the stone with two bright scintillating ends. But they are not the total answer to this stones interest. The a/b, mellow as it is, has just enough strength to separate the two ends and make them even more interesting. The whole package appears to be eye clean with great crystal. It weighs in with a flashy 2.70 carats.
