This round standard brilliant is a member of a group of gemstones I call "droplets of color". They are around 6 mm in diameter or less and are all rounds. I do them to give myself a rest from the polish wars with the bigger gems and they still deliver the dose of color I need to keep me cutting. This gem is rather an unusual purple that comes from Madagascar. It is colored only by iron and manganese and can be hard to put in the rainbow. Still different is tourmaline and tourmaline is the color power to light up my life.
