This is a beautiful, rich green tourmaline, with an open c axis, from Nigeria, Africa. I've used a proprietary cut 'Emerald Illusion', to give the appearance of the classic, barred, emerald styled cut, but a much brighter light return.
The stone does have a series of small internal flaws in a band across it's middle. The flaws are not obvious unless viewed at close range, but I have reduced the price for this reason.
