Saying a chrome tourmaline is green is redundant, but I don’t want anyone, even for a moment to think that this standard round brilliant is anything other than the ideal green tourmaline in a medium tone level. It is not dichroic and its level of saturation, purity of color, is excellent. It appears to be eye clean and has fine crystal. It is hard to put a finger on , but chrome tourmaline has a different visual presence than the much more common iron colored tourmaline. It definitely has a different absorption curve in the visible range of wavelength than any iron based green and I hope to find out more. This GEM weighs 1.84 carats and walks alone.
