I love Tourmalines. They come in any color imaginable, and they still never cease to surprise me. This emerald green Tourmaline is a great example of how vibrant they can be!
I chose a simple Round Brilliant for this little gem and it turned out beautifully. It's a traditional cut for diamonds but in this shade of green, you can really see what the design does. The way the light shines in every facet, the Round "Brilliant" is appropriately named!
This Tourmaline is clean with no inclusions.
Tourmaline is a wonderful stone, and one of the most colorful, coming in a vast array of colors, and often sharing more than one color in a stone. Some are even dicrotic, meaning they are different colors depending which side you look through.Tourmaline is a 7-7.5 on the Mohs Hardness Scale, making it acceptable as a ring for everyday wear, but caution should be taken to preserve its beauty. It has the privilege of being marked as October's birthstone.
