This oval weighs 9.16 carats. Pad sapphire (I refuse to try spelling it all out) comes to mind when I look at this bright mid-tone tourmaline with a fine balance of red and yellow making a melon color. She (it just has to be a feminine stone to me) probably came from Cabo Delgado in Northern Mozambique. The GIA found that the tourmaline coming out of the area are either the species Dravite or Liddicoatite. They come from quite different geological worlds even if they are both tourmaline, but that was what was found. I guess Liddicoatite if it really matters, but I can't test for that with the spectrometer. I tried to make her pure, but a deep feather I pursued pushed me to the point that I needed to save her beautiful body, more than leaving a beauty mark under the table.
