Yellow Tourmaline Gemstones
Oval – 1 to 5 Carats
Why would I cut a small oval that does not have good crystal, and on top of that it has a circus of inclusions that leave a few marks on the table. Because it is a medium toned yellow without any drift toward green or brown. And even though the poor optical properties of the stone worked against it, it is still a pretty gem with a rare color in tourmaline. It weighs 1.88 carats that keeps smiling.
I like this gemstone. i gave it a step cut top that helps make bright stones. Its inclusions are numerous, but disorganized accept for a faint feather. The inclusions do influence the flash of the stone, but in return they help make that old bright candy look predominate. On top of being vivid yellow, the oval has a fine medium tone level. Not a GEM because of the inclusions, but a joy at 2.64 carats.
