Gorgeous cutting (as usual for Gene), and it's a nice size.

If you don''t say it I would have guessed umbalite garnet. Very decent size.

i assume you''re having it sent to you for final approval. please post pictures. i''m not usually a tourmaline person because they just don''t have the zap of a garnet but if i were to ever buy a tourmaline, it would be from gene. i think he''s got a natural affinity for picking rough and then cutting it.

Well you did good for a first time stone purchase. My first time stone purchase was an ugly badly cut citrine. I think I''ll give it to my daughter to play with.

Do let us know how it is. Good tourmalines aren''t easy to find. Most tend to get muddy in indoor lights.

Congrats! Please post pics when you get it. Are you planning to set it as a ring?

It''s strange that I don''t like oval diamonds but I love oval colored stones!

I didn''t know that. I have a beautiful green tourmaline that I just love. Vibrant neon green. It''s small so I am not really planning to do anything with it. I just like looking at it :)

That''s a good enough reason to buy: gotta love it and enjoy looking at it.
