Now I haven’t looked at a large number of “chocolate” diamonds, but this dark flash driven golden brown beauty seems to fill the bill for me. The oval appears to be eye clean and with its table, cut perpendicular to the principle axis. I have to admit that the only superior physical property that this tourmaline might have over a chocolate diamond is that no one has treated this rather lowly tourmaline. But now that people, who buy gemstones, have discovered that earth tone colors and chocolate color are desirable. The pricing in tourmaline, which is escalating rapidly, will change again. The posted gemstone weighs 3.84 carats.
