by Rare gem lover » Sep 2, 2018 The cutter himself showed me this rough. He wasn’t about to cut it but I practically made him!! Since I have had one neon tourmaline I just couldn’t pass up the chance to have another so even the rough was a bit included I decided to take the risk and get it cut. However I have bought rough myself from groups on Facebook and then gotten it cut too. Here the risk was a bit bigger because I picked out rough myself and that too online. I bought 5 blue green pieces of tourmaline rough , one isn’t done yet but the other four came out really well. Here are some pics. I guess what I mean is, it’s totally worth it and if you commission it and the result turns out to be great, it’s often better than you or the cutter expected and you end up getting a great deal too.
