Additional Information
Another collectors color "peach" to soft red-orange. This stone color has no specific name but looks a little similar to some imperial topaz in color. The cut is only average and had the native cut "pineapple" bottom. Because tourmaline has such a complex chemical structure, it can contain a huge number of active color centers and may be found in virtually any color.
