A very nice tourmaline. This mineral is often used in jewelry, and you can find it in very different colors. This one comes from Mozambique, and has optical phenomenon called pleïochroism : The gemstone can appear forest green or apple green/yellow depending on the viewing angle. The cut is well done, and the final result very shiny !L'Atelier Lazuli :
All the stones I sell are cut by myself at my workshop in Paris. Every gemstones from around the world have been cut to achieve the best possible color and brilliance. Also I always try when the rough’s shape allows it to offer an original and custom design.
I select and examine carefully every gemstone I get before cutting them, and I’m extremely vigilant about the rough’s quality. Also you will not find here lab grown stones, synthetics, fissures filled or irradiated stones. If a gemstone may have been heated (which in jewelry is very usual for some species), I mention it systematically in description.
