Quality: These Quality Tourmaline Briolette Beads are probably about an A-, it’s a tough call, and I would rather call the stone a B/B+ and the cut an A because the cut is so fantastic, it changes these stones categorically. Someone who loves stones must have cut these guys – because the polish is lovely. You can see in the image how incredibly languid and seductive these stones are just sitting there, and it’s all in the cut. They have a gloss like they are wet and are incredibly smooth.
The color is more of a medium, but these are still only translucent (even more opaque in the middle). Anyway, I’m quite impressed with this little strand. Although quite petite in size they are slightly graduated at the center, and a very sweet set.
The beads in the image are the beads you will receive.
Like it or not, when you tell people it’s genuine Tourmaline (just like with aquamarine), their eyebrows will go up & they will have another look – they can’t help it.
