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 Afghanistan. The stone shows a beautiful crystal blue green color which is one of the classic shades for Tourmaline. This stone has some very very slight inclusions, but they are magnified in the photos, and the stone truly does look BETTER IN PERSON. 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 stone like this, it's not uncommon. 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. The stone has an "Oval" cut, and the color is very attractive in person.
