This pure medium yellow droplet came from a couple of large semifacet pebbles I bought inexpensively years ago. A combination of good properties sets the stones I cut from the pebbles apart from everything else I have been able to get. Most of them are not clean, but this small round appears to be eye clean. Thank goodness it is big enough at .65 carats to be a droplet, because they need him on the team. Pure yellow is a challenge in tourmaline and I have been actively seeking it out. My principle competitors have been the Japanese with their love of color gemstones and the raising sun.
