When I find a piece of tourmaline rough that is suitable for a shield cut I jump on it. The strongly dichroic nature of many green tourmalines makes it relatively rare to find a suitable piece even when there is a good shape to the rough. Well this posted stone made the most of the opportunity to cut a smaller (1.26 carat) shield cut. It has a solid middle of the road tone value and a bright flashy green that is also solid. So if you want a great green that knows who it is, in a flashy shield cut, this is it.
