I like Katlang stones, but the orange tones come with potential photostability problems (ie, they often fade a lot in sunlight). The color of this one is interesting, and does look to have a significant pink component so it might not be an issue. That said, Katlang is always a harder sell outside of the pink tone range, and with a huge window like that it's going to be an uphill battle. You might do better to heat treat it and sell it as a pink stone since the market is more familiar, but I haven't sold enough of this material to be sure that's good advice.
