This green with a touch of yellow is a classic tourmaline color. The stone is clean and has closed ends. Its weight is 3.04 carats and about as large as I would cut for a ring stone.
In 1968 I returned home from Golden Colorado via Yellowstone and Niagara Falls, after taking a surveying course. I had stayed in cheap motels and eaten fast food so I had a little money left over. My home was about 20 miles west of New York city and with money in pocket, I headed out on my one and only buying trip to New York city to get faceting rough. I went to an office that I had never been to before, but everything went well. I got a total of five stones, but the only significant piece of rough was a tourmaline with exactly the color as this gemstone that I am writing the post about. It was good sized crystal from Brazil and it made the largest gemstone I cut as a kid. After hours polishing the table I swore that I would never cut a bigger one. Well with better equipment (I used to polish after a 600 grind) I have done much bigger stone.
This clean emerald cut has closed ends and a classic green tourmaline look. A green on the yellow side , but no brown, and with a tone that is medium dark. Brazil produced tons of it in time. I am not sure where this piece came from since this gemstone is really a pretty common tourmaline, but still pretty. It weighs 3.04 carats and has normal angles on the ends.
