Colour-change Chrome Tourmaline, faceted, Mozambique. 1.29 carats. ** SOLD **

** SOLD **

A faceted, transparent green chrome-bearing Tourmaline with a remarkable colour-change effect.

In daylight it is a deep green colour (images 1 and 3), but in incandescent light it reverts to a bright orange-red (image 2).

The effect is unlike many colour-change gem varieties in that it only occurs when the light is shone onto the front of the stone, rather than transmitted through it.

A rare and unusual gemmological curiosity from a unique find in Mozambique.
