The combination of a pure rich tourmaline green with a touch of yellow and closed ends produces a very modern look in an emerald cut with steep ends. The steep ends produces a pattern of flash where alternate bars of color turn off and on and you need to tilt the stone to see any flash in the ends. This difference from “regular emerald cuts” is also coupled with the corners having to be cut off more. This smaller gemstone has great crystal and is eye clean. It weighs 1.77 carats.
