DescriptionFINE GEMSTONE: INDICOLITE (BLUE TOURMALINE) - 8.05 CT
Tourmaline is a pegmatite mineral that is found worldwide. However, the percentage of gem grade Tourmaline on Earth is infinitesimally smaller. Color is critical when evaluating Tourmaline: there are more shades, hues, and nuances of color in Tourmaline than any other gemstone. Some colors are fairly common, while others such as Indicolite: the blue variety of Tourmaline - are rare even for Tourmaline. Tourmalines are also pleochroic gemstones - so different colors appear when the stone is viewed from different directions: this Indicolite is a deep aquamarine blue with hints of turquoise. Indicolite is becoming increasingly difficult to find, and at the same time market demand is increasing enormously as people discover this beautiful blue gem. This clean, emerald cut gemstone measures 17.5 x 8.0 mm, weighs 8.05 carats, and is in pristine condition.
