So I re cut it into a 6.85 carat Wilff Ross Corner Cut Rectangle . I was ruthless with the heat induced inclusions so there was a large loss.
I had it graded in SA before the fire thingie, and I knew it was heat treated before, which is probably why it survived with not much colour change.
I engraved the sides of the tube,(bezel)
I was so slack that it took me nearly a year to get round to making this ring after I cut the stone, or at least, doing something with it.
And then it took me six months to finish it. Talk about lying around.
I carved this tourmaline yesterday. Nigerian 4.2 carats.
Haven't the faintest what I am going to do with it. A pendant, maybe.
