COMMENT:

TRULY A VERY PHENOMENAL & HIGHLY PRIZED GEMSTONE HERE!!

Here is a very top end watermelon color tourmaline that was mined from our friends Clara Chan & Ross Walkers Jagoda mine in the Mkushi pegmatite area of central Zambia, Africa. This really nice size tourmaline has an exceptional face up appearance & a very gemmy eye appeal with some indistinct color separation & intense watermelon color. WATERMELON DESCRIBES AS MULTI-COLOR OF GREEN IN CONJUNCTION WITH PINK TO RED. ((The enormous variety of colors in which Tourmaline is available is surely a major inspiration for some very talented designers and is the reason why tourmaline is so highly prized by collectors, lapidary, gem enthusiasts and alike. Zambia has been mining Tourmaline's for many years, and the most renowned mine is the Hofmeyer Mine near Nyimba. Production there has dropped in recent years but occasionally some fine greens and deep reds are mined by local diggers/miners at this now abandoned mine.)) This gem would make an excellent gift to that someone special, or an addition to a collection. Excellent size for a ring or a pendant! This gem runs no less than $150 per carat for this cut, color, clarity & carat weight from a jeweler or a gem shopping network, absolutely guaranteed! Around $450 on the market.
