Now I knew that this was an exceptional gem, but it was in a different tray than the other sea foams, so I never really compare it with them. Now, thanks to this effort in posting (2013), I have all the trays out and together and so I can compared the chosen. I say chosen because every one of the comparable sea foams in the collection are among the most beautiful of tourmaline. Well this gemstone won the emerald cut part of the contest hands down. It is distinctly richer in its medium tone level than even larger stones. But it still has that brightness we should all associate with the blue green, yellow green dichroic colors that form sea foam from Afghanistan. I think that about covers it except that this GEM has a nice size of 4.34 carats.
