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 several years ago in Afghanistan. The stone shows a rich blue green color. One of the most impressive aspects of this gem is the fact that it is only very very slightly included which is remarkable for Tourmaline. 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 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. The stone has a deep "Step Bar" cut.
