Item Description

Inclusion stone exist in a special category of gems. I know there are people who specialize in collecting this specific material. The term "inclusion" has two meanings in the gem world, one referring to unwanted material that impairs the clarity of the stone, but in the case of this gem the inclusion is actually another mineral, which is much more desirable and sought after in certain cases. This stone comes to us from Brazil and is a colorless Topaz featuring an "Emerald" cut with a thin "needle" like inclusion of gemmy green Tourmaline! You often see Tourmaline included inside of Quartz, but Topaz rarely seen hosting Tourmaline crystals like this. If you collect oddball stones, unique gems or if you like general curiosities, don't miss out on this attractive stone for your collection.
