Greenish Paraiba 9x6mm Pear Shape Certified
These tourmaline is from Paraiba Brazil (not Mozambique) and copper bearing. I've been searching high and low for this stuff but there's hardly any, anywhere. The prices are correspondingly astronomical. Approximately like ruby but even more in the melee sizes.
This piece is a pear shape and more greenish (my personal preferred color). The price for greenish paraiba is lower than for blue and turqoise so you can get a much bigger piece for your money. This piece isn't as crisp as the last one but it has great color and it is over one carat!
This piece is certified by GAL. The listed price, which is the replacement value, is a bit higher than the price I quote here. The listed price is $2100.
So here are the specs:
Shape: Pear shape
Size: 9.13 x 5.63 x 4.12mm
Weight: 1.17 cts
Origin: Paraiba mines, Brazil
Color: Neon green
Per carat price: $1500
Price of gem: $1755
