Here's a new addition to my rock collection. Seafoam pale green Asscher? tourmaline, 3.02 cts (Afghanistan).

Zeolite,
Pretty cutting on the stone, but it looks more like a greyish blue than a seafoam green on my monitor.

TL, I was wondering about your monitor. Mine is calibrated (for digital picture printing) and both on my monitor and the actual stone, it is green.

It will join my collection of 38 tourmalines and remain unmounted. The only stones I wear are pendants, and my smallest pendant is 14 cts.

Thanks Zeolite,
I have two monitors and one definitely needs calibration. It is a very beautiful stone.

38 tourmalines!?! Lucky lady! I think this calls for a massive photoshoot soon...

Here are 9 tourmalines, all cut in the opposed bar shape, upper left hand corner:

I have more opposed bars, including more tourmalines, than shown here, but i think it makes my point.

Zeolite is rather gender non-specific. Being male, I tend not to wear earrings or rings, but have trouble not showing my love of gemstones. Hence the pendants, which I think needs to be large, compared to rings or earrings.

WOWZA, especially that pink spinel in the middle case on the bottom row!! There''s a running joke around here that I''m the "spinel-hater" (some PS''ers have jokingly given me that title), but that would make me turn around quickly!!

You need to give the specs on that spinel! Do you have a closeup?

Oops pardon my gender mistake, Mr. Zeolite! I''ll remember now

That''s an incredible collection you have! I''m in love with the top tourmaline in the third box, and that diaspore!

You really don''t want to see it closer, but here it is below. It does look clearer than this enlarged picture. It''s a hot color but poor clarity. 1.04 cts oppposed bar, from Tanzania. Tanzania has ok spinel color but just about the worst clarity of anwhere. That 1.03 ct pink trigon spinel I posted yesterday has the finest clarity of any spinel that I''ve ever seen from Tanzania
