Fancy Portugues Square Cut Tourmaline, Afghanistan, 8.95 cts

This is one big, extremely brilliant tourmaline, especially for an uncommon pink stone from Afghanistan. I cut the bottom as a sort of Portuguese round that I “barionized” into a cut cornered square shape. The crown is a scissors design. This thing REALLY SPARKLES and was hard to look at in sunlight. Also, it dsplays only a mild color shift indoors toward more of a champaigne color, but not an unpleasant brown. I had the chance to pick some of the nicest rough out of a huge parcel of rare Afghani pink tourmalines, and this was the biggest one with good color. This is likely a “world class” gemstone.
