Take a pinch of copper, throw in some iron, a smidgeon of manganese chromophore and a few million years of metamorphosis and Mother Nature produces something unique.
This magnificent, flawless multi-colour tourmaline from Mozambique weighs 59.40 carats and is going straight to the 'Want List'.

It's beautiful. How will you have it set?

Not often that I am impressed by baubles, but that is seriously beautiful.

A dilemma for me, River. I am so flawless myself that the gem would be hard put to stand out. Rough cast gold with scattered green diamonds but ring or necklace?

Excellent taste, Andrew. A little tacky for a 'Prince Albert' though.
