FACETING AND CABBING ROUGH:

This page shows some of the faceting and cabbing rough we have available. Please note that we have given as accurate a description as possible but cannot guarantee specific yields or results. Our description is based on our best estimation and as you will probably be aware this can only ever be an estimation not a guarantee.  How you cut and what you cut and how much experience you have will also have a bearing on the result. All of the material you see on this page is available for purchase and is on site. If you have requests for other material please email us ..we may have it but have not had a chance to list it.  A number of our items for sale we have listed across other media channels so there is a slight chance that something you have ordered is unavailable due to just being sold elsewhere and this website not being updated yet.  This does not happen very often but has occurred.  In this case we will contact you and try and arrange an alternative and if this unsuccessful , will refund you the amount in question.  We also have a small selection of faceting supplies which you can see on Faceting Supplies . If you are wanting to inspect the goods prior to committing you may purchase on an “on approval” basis. These must be returned within 7 days of being received and we will refund your purchase price less our shipping charges. Obviously any cutting/working of the goods will cancel our refund obligation.

Pink Tourmaline is found in many countries but from a commercial point Brazil, Mozambique, Nigeria, the Congo, Malawi, Afghanistan and Madagascar are main sources.  However Maine and Californian Tourmaline from the US as well as Russian tourmaline from the Urals is also popular when available.    Since tourmaline is a dichroic gem (can show different colours when viewed from different angles), it is important to orient the rough so that the better colour shows predominantly when viewed through the crown and table.

From Nigeria we have one nice piece of clean Bi- colour/Pink Tourmaline facet rough with a weight of 13.494 carats. Clean internally the size is 18x7x7mm. Great shape for a high yielding piece. The C axis is open and is a lovely rich but open Rubellite colour. The last 3mm of the crystal is light green/pink so if you cut a bicolour a majority of the stone will be the medium pink. The colour shift zone area is not fractured so a nice clean inclusion free stone. If you decided to cut with the C axis as the table should get 3 at 6.5 to 7mm rounds with a hot reddish pink colour.
