We don't often find excellent examples of true 'chrome' Tourmaline to offer.  The material is rare and exceedingly costly - it is quite easy to pay nearly as much as fine Tsavorite for this material.  The color is just superb though, a deep and rich green ever so slightly highlighted by a bluish modifier.  Here we have a fine example - completely clean, nicely cut and quite impressive.  This one blazes red under a Chelsea filter - the classic test for the presence of Chromium.  Lovely stone and what many green stones aspire to be!
