Paraiba not so much!

Well the so called Paraiba in the last post was sent to one of the best testing facilities in the U.S.A and came back with such a small percentage of copper that it could not reasonably be called copper bearing material.
Oh well,the rough material was a reasonable price and the tourmaline is a gorgeous blue so no harm no foul.

I just finished this very fine set of Nigerian pink tourmalines today,they are cut in a very bright cushion design that really pops.Specs;2.13ct,6mm,clarity (IF).They will be posted on the website soon so if you are on the look out for some super earring stones email me ahead of time and they could be yours.
