Lot Details
Cuprian Tourmaline--"Paraiba-type Tourmaline"
Nigeria
From an earlier deposit of copper-bearing tourmalines than the "newer mine" Mozambique stones one sees currently on the market, the present stone originates from a circa 2000 find in Nigeria. Polished into an sugar-loaf cabochon of very wearable ring-size, this attractive stone displays a desirable "swimming pool" blue color.
Weighing approximately 9.5 carats and measuring 10.1 x 1.1 x 8.5mm
