Slide FOREST BEAUTY ENVIROMENTAL COLLECTION The Richness of the Forest merged into a jewel ROUGH CUT JEWEL MODEL

GREEN TOURMALINE 6,15ct

Turmalines were first discovered by Dutch traders in the late 1600’s or early 1700’s. At the time, these green tourmalines were assumed to be emeralds. It wasn’t until the 1800s when scientists realized that these stones were their own species of mineral. Tourmaline comes from the word “turmali” that means “mixed colors stone”. Its crossed veins give it a very attractive touch. Its triangular cross-sectional shape is unique; no other gem has such a shape. This gem is more valuable as a jewel than as a collector’s item, because its brilliance and luminosity resemble emerald. 

FOREST BEAUTY Ring inspired by the abundance and richness of the Forest, whose greenery is manifested in its beautiful Green Tourmaline central stone.
