    Gemstone: Bicolor Tourmaline - 56.79 Cts.
    Democratic Republic of the Congo

    Bicolor Tourmaline gemstones are always in vogue with serious collectors as they offer somewhat of a "two-for-one" deal. These iconic stones have the interesting habit of displaying two hues at the same time. This incredible stone features a lovely pink/green combination due to color zoning. The classic rectangular emerald cut stone weighs an impressive 56+ carats and seamlessly transitions from a light pink to a light green hue. Great care and skill went into cutting this specimen, and it shows, as the gem's step facets light up. The color transitions from a darker peachy pink at one end and progresses to a light green to a darker mint green at the other. The stone is in pristine condition, with only a few inclusions visible around the girdle but, otherwise, exhibits nice scintillation and transparency. Overall, this colorful stone would add a nice pop of color to any collection and deserves to be displayed in a prominent space.
    Measurements: 36.61 x 14.83 x 11.47 mm, 56.79 cts.
