Paraiba Tourmaline Cabochon, Green Paraiba, Neon Paraiba, 2 Carat Paraiba, Brazilian Paraiba
This tourmaline oval is a Paraiba - copper bearing and from the Paraiba mines in Brazil. This piece is green, not blue, early mining days and super duper vibrant. And for a cab, very clean. My personal favorite color, and this is my favorite piece aside from the one in my own Camellia ring (which several of you have copied already). This piece would look awesome in the Camellia ring surrounded by my 1.6mm paraiba melee.
So here are the specs:
Size: 7.07 x 4.95mm
Weight: 1.96 Cts
Origin: Paraiba mines, Brazil
Treatment: might be lightly oiled
Color: Neon green
Per carat price: $2000
Price of gem: $3920
You have a 2 week inspection period with any of my gems (you need to look at it to be sure you want it), during which I will take it back, no questions asked.
Certs: right now it is not certified. All my paraibas come from the same seller and the origin is guaranteed. That said, I can do a GAL for free (mini cert that says copper bearing or bigger cert that also says that). For a cert with origin I have to go to AGL because GAL doesn't have the equipment or enough comparison scans yet. The prestige with origin report at AGL is $370 and not included.
Custom orders (ring or pendant) are non-refundable, however.
