Gems and Jewelry, 9.2 x 6.9 mm; 3.25 carats

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 rich blue-green color, and is virtually eye clean, which is great for this material. 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 "Emerald" cut
