Years ago, Robert Michael mined for Black Tourmaline crystals near Evergreen Station, Colorado. He faceted the cleanest part of one crystal into this 21x12mm emerald-shaped gem weighing 16.67 carats. Robert chose a Scissor-cut for this gem, and while it is difficult to capture the facets with a camera, this cut allows for quite a bit of light reflection off the facets. In fact, we altered one of the images below to show the criss cross pattern. A sophisticated, classic look. Robert set the gem in a Rhodium-plated Sterling Silver Pendant.
Tourmaline is one of the October Birthstones. However, Pink Tourmaline is typically chosen for such events.
