Wow time flies by so fast,I can't believe it's been so long since I posted to the blog.I have been busy cutting orders and not had much time to write anything on the blog at all.I recently had a bit of time away from orders to cut some Nigerian Paraiba type copper bearing tourmaline which came out absolutely stunning.
This beautiful stone looks far better than the picture shows but it was extremely difficult to photograph,the stone is very bright,with excellent light return and the color is a much more intense blue and more saturated than the image shows,it has a few small inclusions which are invisible to the naked eye except for a small veil hidden under the girdle which is just visible when turned sideways.It has been sent to be tested for copper just as a formality to reassure potential buyers and will be up for sale as soon as the results are in.
