I really don’t know how much dark gray tourmaline is out there to be faceted, but this is the only example that I have. It is not just a dud to be kept as an example of the range of color that tourmaline can have. It may not be easy to photograph, but when you move the stone, you see rumblings of powerful slightly brownish gray flash. In other words this is a personal stone and this descriptive paragraph maybe the only way you can appreciate it without seeing it for yourself. I am rather amazed that the stone is not dichroic. It may have a few trivial inclusions that will never be seen face up. The gray weighs 3.18 carats.
