Ametrine Or Bi Color Tourmaline
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 09-30-06 , 10:52 AM

 


 

I bought this several months ago and now cannot remember what it is! I thought it was Ametrine, but am now thinking it may be a watermelon or bi color tourmaline. In any case, it's a real pretty stone. Kind of a pinkish/purple with some green. No yellow to it, which is why I'm thinking now it may not be an ametrine. Hmmmmmm.. I will try to find my receipt for it.

It's a long rectangular shape and I believe it is a scissor cut. Not sure what I will do with it.

It's most likely a tourmaline Rhonda. They are generally dichroic, so if you look down the length of the stone you should see a different color. Most ametrine is distinctly purple and yellow with no green component, (sometime peach when the purple and yellow mix).

I really like the scissors faceting on the pavillion in those elongated emerald cuts.
I agree with the group most likely tourmaline. Very nice stone Rhonda.
Is there any color shift in various lighting conditions?

Thanks I was out all day and didn't get a chance to check my stone closer. I will do it tomorrow when it's daylight out and see what I can see.
