Chrome Green Tourmalines

The best green Tourmaline ever found comes from Tanzania, Africa. It naturally contains Chromium (or Vanadium), which makes this gem exhibit the same beautiful green color observed in top quality Tsavorite or Emerald. Because of its Chromium (or Vanadium) content, the trade named it 'Chrome Tourmaline'. Chrome tourmaline is the most valuable of all green tourmalines with a price several times higher than the price of regular Green Tourmaline. That's why it is very important to make sure that what you are buying is a Chrome Tourmaline not just a "Green" Tourmaline. Chrome Tourmaline is also the birthstone for the month of October

NOTE: Stones on this page were photographed under 5000 Kelvin "daylight" lighting. For maximum color accuracy, descriptions were made in north-facing natural daylight, indoors, between 11am-2pm, at 32.89°N latitude.
COLOR: Wherever possible, a similar Pantone Color Card number has been used, NOT the Pantone colors online, which necessarily use RGB approximations, are grayer, and not at all the same. Since color is so subjective to lighting conditions, and daylight is in turn subjective to location, descriptions and pictures are intended to give a general idea of actual color. To know what these stones really look like, there is no substitute for seeing them in person.
