2.00 Carat AAA Quality Baby Pink Color Natural Tourmaline Gemstone (N)
Pink is one of the most popular colors in gems and no gems offers as many choices in pink as tourmaline. Pink Tourmaline has become a favorite in jewelry because it is available in so many shades, ranging from light pink to hot pink and all the shades of pink in between.
Sometimes two or more colors are found in a single tourmaline crystal. You'll find tourmalines with multiple shades of pink as well as bi-color and tricolor gems which combine pink and one or two other colors, such as the distinctive watermelon tourmaline.
The price and value of pink tourmaline varies according to quality. The chief determinants of value are color, clarity, cut and size. While color is usually a matter of personal preference, the more saturated and brighter pinks tend to be the most valuable. Tourmaline is typically a very clean gem, so eye clean stones are expected. However, many of the pinks as well as the pink-red rubellite tend to have some inclusions. Fine stone over 5 carats are especially valuable. Buy your pink tourmaline from a reputable dealer in fine gemstones.
