Malawi Tourmaline 18KY and Platinum Ring
This stone is 2.19 carat Tourmaline. It comes from Malawi, which sits adjacent to Mozambique, well known in the gemstone world. The Northern part of Mozambique is blessed at a geologically critical junction where the Mozambique and Zambezi gemstone belts cut through the country. This produces a highly mineralized hotbed producing some of the world’s rarest and most valuable gemstones. This stone displays an orange/magenta pink dichroism, rarely seen in gemstones. This location only produced a handful of these stones last year, and so far, have not produced any this year. The stone was cut by Nolan Sponsler. The stone is set in a hand carved and cast 18k yellow bezel. The shank is hand-fabricated from platinum sheet and features a one of kind Art Deco hand-engraving. The ring is a size 6 1/2.
