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 Brazil. The stone shows a beautiful, saturated, bluish green color and just shimmers in the light. This stone was cut a few weeks ago by Allyce Ruhl and the name of the cut is a "Modified Cut Corner Rectangle". The gem is very well cut and is very close to being eye clean. Tourmaline is classified as a "Type 3" gemstone, as inclusions are almost always present, and accepted by dealers and collectors. I have to say that these stones are becoming harder and harder to find these days with so much gem Tourmalines coming out of Afghanistan and Africa lately. This stone is valued at $375 retail, and is probably going to be a great bargain for any collector.
