Blue Tourmaline Gemstones
Octagonal – 1 to 5 Carats
This emerald cut has a color that renders inclusions of secondary concern. The color is a rich sapphire like blue and the inclusions are rather like sheets that are usually seen close to the sides of tourmaline crystals. The inclusions definitely effect the brightness and flash of the gemstone. The dark tone values keep the inclusions from being too obnoxious. The sum total for this 1.73 carat gemstone is a darker world with less flash, but a great color.
