This darker toned richly color emerald cut had closed ends. Its color is principally blue with a nice touch of green. It appears to be eye clean and weighs 2.33 carats.
Cutting an emerald cut with steep angles on the ends is really the only way to go with crystals of tourmaline that have closed ends. The geometry of the cut demands the removal of more material from the corners. This, when combined with a different flash than “normal” emerald cuts, sets them apart. I prefer regular emerald cuts, but this stone is lively, even with its closed ends. Its hue and tone are rich and the stone appreciates a decent light and personal attention, but is a smaller beauty on its own terms. It appears to be eye clean and weighs 1.33 carats.
