It is rather sad to use peridot’s green to reference tourmaline’s, but I think that more people know it than tourmaline’s colors. Hopefully not for long. I like yellow greens in tourmaline, they polish wonderfully and I think they have an extra ump to them. Perhaps they have a little higher index of refraction from their titanium content and/or just from the great polish. Either way they can really light up as long as they are not drained by brown.This medium toned round has good saturation but is too dark to be eye candy. Still it is very nice and weighs 2.72 carats.
