Tourmaline is known for its complex crystal structures. At its basic structure tourmaline is a borosilicate and forms producing a vast array of colors and crystal structures. Green tourmalines are one of the variety of tourmaline and is one of the most sought after for faceting. One of the more rarer varieties of Green Tourmaline is Chromium tourmaline which produces a rich forest green due to its chromium content.
This specimen of tourmaline is dark forest green and is pictured with light shining down on the specimen to showcase its layers. The top layer is a much lighter green than the base. The specimen grows darker and richer the deeper into the stone.
This specimen appears to be a good candidate for faceting, but as we are not lapidarists we cannot say for sure.
