This traditional emerald cut weighs 4.34 carats. This clean tourmaline has the flash, brightness and glow of a well cut, top grade Afghanistan sea foam. My spectrometer has confirmed, as many laboratories have done before, that Afghanistan has yet to produce cuprian tourmaline no matter what color or level of glow it has. Copper or not, top grade sea foam is one of the great beauties of tourmaline, that can easily drain your bank account.
