0.33CT Round Chrome Tourmaline

Stone: Chrome Tourmaline

Weight: 0.33ct
Measurements (LxWxD): 4.30 x 4.30 x 3.10 mm
Color: Green
Clarity: Eye Clean
Hardness: 7 - 7.5

Chrome tourmaline is a rather special member of the tourmaline group. Found only in east Africa, it is usually found mainly in small sizes. But what it lacks in size it makes up for in color - it displays perhaps the richest, most intense green in the gemstone world. Like emerald and tsavorite garnet, fine chrome tourmaline is a pure forest green with slightly yellowish to bluish secondary hues.

This gem tourmaline, defined by it’s intense green color and presence of chromium and vanadium, is a very limited resource and has so far only been discovered in Tanzania. The finest color Chrome Tourmaline, bright but deep intense bluish green with little or no yellow, has always been very hard to obtain with only a very small percentage of stones that are found of that quality. Currently there has been very little fine chrome tourmaline rough available in the market and we are working from a limited supply of old stock materials. This is definitely a collectors stone and a great affordable, and more durable, alternative to emerald.

Chrome tourmaline is considered to be one of the most durable gemstones available. It requires very little care and maintenance, however, owing to its unique ability to carry a small electrical charge, it tends to attract more dust than most other gems. It is recommended that a simple soft cloth and warm soapy water is used for this. Be sure to rinse stones well to remove soapy residue. Although tourmaline in general is considered quite hard and durable, avoid wearing it when working with any harsh chemicals or cleaners, especially bleach and sulfuric acid.
