This shield cut tourmaline weighs 1.57 carats. I have bigger orange tourmaline gems now, but none have a better more stable color that does not brown out or turn yellowish in normal "white" lights. It is bright, clean and my best effort in color, saturation and tone to be up there with the garnets in orange. Now if I could only work on tourmaline's lower index of refraction, which I do my best to compensate for, by giving the tourmaline an exceptional finish.
