Turquoise Paraiba Tourmaline Emerald Cut from Brazil .82 Carats

  • 1,14800

This 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. I found this piece in Tucson from a seller who cuts his own.

This piece is a little darker greenish blue, lightly included.

So here are the specs:

Shape: Emerald
Size: 5.35 x 4.70 x 3.80mm
Weight: .82 cts
Origin: Paraiba mines, Brazil
Treatment: low temp heat
Color: Neon darker greenish blue
Per carat price: $1400
Price of gem: $1148
