Spectacular lot of Peachy Pink African Tourmaline Faceting Rough. We are unfortunately uncertain of the origin of this material; however, we are fairly confident that it is from Nigeria. The material itself has probably been out of the ground for about 10 years!

This Tourmaline varies in color from a Pastel Peach/Pink to a bright Peach and Pink. This is a small sample that remained of a large parcel that was sold directly and we are just moving it out to clear the desk.

The parcel is running roughly 65%+ High to Top Facet Grade with the bulk of the remainder being a lower facet grade and we are confident you will get some lovely finished gems out of this lot that will leave you breathless!!

  1. Nigerian Tourmaline production has decreased significantly and prices have begun to go up. This material treats to a magnificent Rubellite color with Orangey flashes!
