A beautiful and highly unusual color for Tourmaline - a bright, very slightly pinkish orange.  The really remarkable element of the color is the distinct lack of a brownish modifier; orange Tourmaline is scarce and we have never before seen one with such an unusual light pinkish tone.  Part of a collection formed decades ago, the locality was listed as Mozambique which may, in part, explain the unusual hue.  Either way, it is a very pleasant and appealing shade - made all the more entrancing by the huge size of the stone.  If this were a one or two carat stone, we would still have noticed the color, but clearly the size adds to visual impression of the gem.  Moreover, the stone is completely clean, bright and brilliant.  A 20 carat Tourmaline is nothing to scoff at in almost any color, let alone one that is unique in our experience.  Outstanding stone.
