A large, stunning tourmaline, showing excellent green and brown dichroism. This stone was responsibly mined by a member of the Tanzanian Women Miners' Association (TAWOMA) in the Tanga region in north-east Tanzania as part of the Moyo Gemstones project and traceable back to the individual miner. It was cut in our workshop in Sri Lanka.
The stone has a slight chip on the girdle, which should not be apparent when the stone is set. It also has some visible inclusions.
