Tourmaline and Sapphire Ring
Cabochons are a type of gemstone that have a flat bottom and a domed top. They are used, sometimes, to get a gemstone out of material that may not otherwise be cutable.
However, this stunning cab could have been cut into a faceted stone. Instead, a goregous tourmaline cabochon was cut. The stone measures 11 x 9 mm and weighs 4.8 cts. It was mined at Mt. Mica. The accents stones are bright blue sapphires (which were not mined in Maine).
The ring was crafted by Alex Boyd of Denver, CO.
