Sometime before the availability of Namibian blue tourmaline decreased greatly for me, I bought a lot from my principle dealer out of Africa. The lot had over a dozen pieces of rough in it and I am sure some of the smaller blues i have reported on were from that lot, but I don’t clearly remember it. With this medium dark toned exceptional beautiful blue Namibian tourmaline I am sure it came from “the lot of legion”. Now some of the rough developed running flaws and are really only display gems (probably from heating), while others were more of a blue green color, but this gem is blue, and pure and flashy for an emerald cut and not dichroic and …. As long as the descriptive adjective is a positive feature for tourmaline you can add it to the list. Oh, and it weighs 3.08 carats.
