Many people who have become familiar with commercially cut emerald cuts, hold them in low esteem. They don’t have the scintillation of many other cuts (all emerald cuts share this) and the emerald cut’s flash is lessened by cutting them too deeply or too thinly and giving them a low level of polish. The disregard for the fundamental physical laws of reflection, produce colorful gemstones that window (light passes completely threw the gem without reflection) terribly.
Well this beautiful blue green emerald cut is not commercial and one quick glance at it can dispel, forever, the notion that emerald cuts can not be exciting flashy gemstones. The rough tourmaline came from Afghanistan and has an exquisitely open c axis that produces no darkness in the gem. Now, let’s cut to the chase, this gemstone is a GEM, that every tourmaline wishes to be. It weighs 1.55 precious carats.
