This Tourmaline is a lovely shade of rich peach-pink with a hint of orange and has been referred to as the color of a prairie sunset-a color that is completely natural.
I cut this gemstone in a design called "Omni Oval," written by Robert Strickland.
This stone has not been treated and has a veil inclusion running parallel with the girdle.
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.
