8.87 ct. Sri Lankan Dravite Tourmaline
large example of this golden brown variety of gem Tourmaline. These often times
test out as Dravite Tourmaline and tend to be marketed as such. The color is a
rich mix of browns, yellows and greens and the stones are exceedingly pleochroic
- this is particularly noticeable in large examples such as this. The
combination of deep yellow with the very red dominant color is quite striking. While
East Africa produces many of these in smaller sizes, these giants tend to still
always be Sri Lankan in origin. Scarce.
