1.23 ct. Orange Tourmaline

Color:  Medium Dark Slightly Yellowish-Orange Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Unknown Cut:  Rectangular Step
Treatments:  None Measurements:  5.9 x 5.5 mm

We are not sure of the locale of this stone - it could  be an unusually saturated example of an East African Dravite-type or simply an oddity from Sri Lanka.  Regardless, the color is quite fine and rare for Tourmaline - more in line with a Spessartite to be completely honest.  Clean and nicely cut, while photographing the stone we noticed a small blemish at one corner (bottom right in the photo) - a tiny nick at the girdle.  Could be repolished, easily hidden in a setting or simply ignored - the color is the attraction here and we barely caught it.
