When I first started back into faceting after a long hiatus, I did not spend a lot of money on rough. To get anything to cut that had decent color in tourmaline I had to go small. And being small became a goal of mine. Keeping the rough on the dop stick became the principle problem.
This Chrome tourmaline (probably colored more by vanadium than chrome) had a high enough level of tone, great saturation and small rough size to try and go for the limit. And the limit it set at .11 carats. It still has plenty of green flash and is an original color dot. All the dots are round standard brilliants.
