9.35 Fancy Yellow Tourmaline

Description
An important "electric" yellow Malawi tourmaline back for liquidation from collector. One of the first ever mined around 2001. The gem is a top orangy yellow 3 color with 45 tone (Light to Medium). It is ultra-clean at LI1 clarity. High 80% brilliancy, plus high cutting and finish grades. This gem has no negative colors in the Color Scan. One of a few stones to receive an Excellent (1.5) TQIR. Looks like a fancy vivid yellow diamond at a fraction of the price. Considerably rarer than yellow sapphire. A super rare collectible or perfect for jewelry.
