COMMENTS:   This is one big, extremely brilliant tourmaline, especially for an uncommon pink stone from Afghanistan.  I cut the bottom as a sort of Portuguese round that I "barionized" into a cut cornered square shape.  The crown is a scissors design.  This thing REALLY SPARKLES and was hard to look at in sunlight.  Also, it dsplays only a mild color shift indoors toward more of a champaigne color, but not an unpleasant brown.  I had the chance to pick some of the nicest rough out of a huge parcel of rare Afghani pink tourmalines, and this was the biggest one with good color.  This is likely a "world class" gemstone.
