COOL FACTS:
  1. Tanzania has become a heavy hitter in the world of Gemstone rough in the last few decades and is producing more and more rough as the days go buy. Sunset Tourmaline is just one of the new finds that is coming from Tanzania and also Kenya and the material is quite unlike any other Green and/or Orange Tourmaline available in the market. Tanzanian Sunset Tourmaline is characterized by a strong dichroism where the AB and C axis have a combination of colors running from a Golden Orange to a Golden Yellow and/or Grassy Green. Many stones produce very unusual finished gems due to this dichroism and are highly sought after by collectors.
