Brazilian Indicolite Tourmaline
This is a classic indicolite tourmaline from Brazil. This most likely was mined in the 1980s when similar-color material was coming out. Pala acquired this piece, along with a bounty of other tourmalines, from an old collection and did a custom recut to bring more life out of the gem.
This indicolite now stands at 21.49 carats and is very rare due to its lighter, more open tone. Most of the indicolite blues are overly dark and appear near black in low lighting. This piece shines even in the dark and has a pleasant, cool, slightly greenish hue and a flawless interior. Great piece for tourmaline lovers!
