• Portuguese Brilliant Cut Tourmaline

    Tourmaline – Natural, Faceted, Pink, 3.63 ct

    This stone is a hybrid cut that combines the top (crown) of a round brilliant with the bottom (pavillion) of a Portuguese round. It has lots of extra facets and shows excellent color play or dispersion in sunlight. Basically, in bright sunlight it looks like somebody put a string of multicolored Christmas lights in it. Also, under incandescent light it does show some of the brownish tint common to this material, although it is better than most. This one's a real sparkler!. Color: Rich Darker Purplish Pink, Cut: Portuguese Brilliant, Weight: 3.63, Dimensions: 9.5 mm. (Information supplied by photo contributor.) © Daniel Stair, CustomGemstones.com
