This is a shield cut to get excited about. It was the premier stone cut from two water worn pebbles I got over the internet from Tanzania years before “canary” tourmaline was discovered (canary tourmaline is a recently discovered yellow that is quite expensive from Tanzania). The pebbles were at best semi-facet grade and all the stones I cut from them are at least lightly included. Still I have never been able to get the same yellow without green, medium tone level, along with the best saturated yellow in the collection, any time since and I have tried. As with the other gemstone from the nodules, this shield cut is slightly included, but it doesn’t slow it down in the least. I love this 3.24 carat shield cut.
