They have a yellow secondary? It depends if you prefer a blue or yellow secondary? Do you own them, or are you considering for purchase, and you want to know opinions beforehand?

I'm not sure if they are chrome. I'm looking for opinions beforehand. I wanted glowing mint tourmalines initially but they are proving quite difficult to source!

Ok, well the things I like about them is that they’re not overly dark, they’re cushions, and match nicely.

What jumps out at me is they they might be windowed. The photographs look like he’s carefully disguising the windows, but I’m not sure. They are definitely not mint colored as those are a more bluish green, These are yellowish green.

Chrome or not, they have to appeal to you. There are ugly chrome tourmalines and beautiful non chrome tourmalines. I would want to make sure they don’t go olive in some lighting or overly dark, which some green tourmaline are prone to.

These won't be glowy and I wouldn't call them mint. I'd say they are green/yellow/blue. If you want glowy mint, contact bayoto on Instagram. He has great stuff

They're too dark in my opinion to be called mint. It may be difficult to source what you want, but it depends ultimately on whether you are happy with these tourmalines.

Yvonne was already recommended. I follow this IG seller but haven't purchased directly. If you aren't sure you can make sure to pay via PayPal for added protection Screenshot_20190414-184006_Instagram.jpg

If you want to get a pair of 8mm mint blue-green tourmalines, then I think I've only seen that color and size from Afghanistan. You'd probably have to be prepared to wait for this process to take some time. When it comes to natural colored gemstones, what they mine and what you can afford is what you get. The more particular you are with what you want, the longer it takes to find exactly what you want. If you don't have patience and a larger budget, best to head to the Fabulous Fashion Jewelry forums and find yourself a pair of synthetics.
