Tourmaline, vivid pink (octagon) square, facet / concave cut



This is a lovely gem! Vivid pink, eyeclean at least, a good size and Mohs hardness for a ring stone and not too small for a pendant, with an even girdle and corners that work for most jewellers. It's about 8mm by 8mm and 2.43ct, this sort of cut is exactly the sort of thing I made a living selling to A E Wards of Hatton Garden, before Brexit made any form of investment a bit tricky.... Anyway, this originated from Mozambique, is about £250/ct, which is £605. And I do teach, but not this style yet, and probably not for a year or two until I've really got it nailed down.
