DescriptionGemstone: Tourmaline - 15.75 Cts.
Pederneira mine (Pederneira claim)
São José da Safira, Minas Gerais
Without question, Tourmaline is one of the most iconic of all gemstones. To add even more pedigree to this Tourmaline, which is of the Indicolite variety, is the world-renowned Pederneira Mine origin, as the Brazilian locality is famous for its rich, blue Tourmalines. This world-class stone features the iconic blue color, a classic cushion shape and a modified brilliant cut. The stone displays the most stunning greenish-blue hue, which is intensely saturated and well-balanced. Overall, this gemstone exhibits nice transparency and scintillation. The incredible offering is eye-clean and also in pristine condition, which is even more impressive since it weighs a whopping 15.75 carats. Without a doubt, this stone was the work of a skilled cutter - in this case, Frank Schaffer of FGS Gems - who is clearly experienced in bringing out the best any rough piece has to offer. This gemstone is accompanied by a GIA certification (#1176178028).
