Now no one wants dark ends, but if that is the fate of your tourmaline, than at least get one that has great color. Well this longer ratio emerald cut tourmaline has one great solid green color. Its medium toned a/b color flashes stoplight green in my yellowish light and even a bluer natural sky leaves the emerald cut with a solid forest green. The longer ratio makes the dark ends a smaller part of the stone which was cut with normal angles. It weighs a solid 4.93 carats.
