1.89 ct. Cat's Eye
Medium Dark Pinkish-Red
6.9 x 6 mm
Unquestionably the finest example of a
cat's eye Tourmaline that we have seen. What is more, the stone is a
fantastic Rubellite color as well. The eye is extremely sharp,
particularly for Tourmaline. Interestingly, the chatoyancy-producing
needles are extremely fine and are contained largely in the top 25% of the gem -
the result of this is that the main body of the gem remains fully transparent.
The resulting effect gives the stone a remarkable color that would be impossible
otherwise. Great shape and polish as well. An outstanding gem and
one that could not be improved upon.
