Tourmaline is a very attractive gem that occurs naturally in many different colors.  Its name is derived from the word toramalli, which means "mixed gems" in Sinhalese, one of the languages spoken in Sri Lanka.  In 1554, Spanish conquistador Francisco Spinoza discovered green tourmaline crystals during a Brazilian expedition, which he mistook for emerald.  It wasn't until the 1800s that mineralogists finally identified tourmaline as its own species.

This stunning 1.61 carat natural yellowish green tourmaline has a wonderful square emerald cutting style.  It is a very attractive color and is a very high clarity gem, with no visible inclusions under 10x magnification!
