Item Description

Tourmalines are some of the most diverse and popular gems out there. This particular gem was cut from a piece of rough found a few years ago in Afghanisan The stone shows a lively blue color with a slight green overtone. One of the most impressive aspects of this gem is the fact that virtually eye clean which is remarkable for Tourmaline. The stone has a "Rectangle" cut. Tourmaline is classified as a "Type 3" gemstone, as inclusions are almost always present, and accepted by dealers and collectors, so when you find a nearly clean stone like this, it's a real treat. I have to say that these stones are becoming harder and harder to find these days with so much gem Tourmalines coming out of Brazil and Africa lately. High retail value on this stone is $318.00
