This is a gem I've recut in the current direction I'm pursueing, which is loosely formed from the table cut style of American gem cutters and the inverse facet style of Burnt Münsteiner of Idar Oberstein in Germany.
And as such, this sort of stuff you're not going to find much of in the UK, and the only other place I've seen this type of cut was on the John Dyers website, and four years ago tourmalines of this size were about $400/ct for a 1ct stone: this gem is not cheap, but not that expensive.
This one is:
0.83ct, £180/ct, total of £149. Free shipping within the UK.
Eyeclean, natural, untreated, origin Afghanistan.
Traditional and modern lapidary techniques.
Gem case, plastic, 3cm round
Postage within the UK, tracked, insured
