This Barion cushion (design by Graham) weighs 10.52 carats. My photographer, who started out just liking tourmaline and then grew to love all of its colors, likes this gemstone the best. It started to roll around on its round pavilion even though it has a rectangular girdle. but Jeff persevered and got a great shot. This along with the pure power of a great hot pink (the stone is not visible dichroic) made the stone so photogenic that it beat out all the rounds for number one with him. I try to be more impartial, since I have to keep balance in the collection. Pink can't rule.
