Chrome Tourmaline Landani, Tanzania Superb gem quality crystal. Known as "Chrome" Tourmaline, it is actually a vanadium rich Uvite/Dravite. These are uncommon to find and this is of excellent quality, though dark green, backlighting reveals the high transparency, like green glass, 53 carats in weight.

This almond-shaped stone is the largest apple-green diamond known. Its green color is attributed to the crystal’s close contact with a radioactive source at some point in its lifetime. The Dresden Green, which probably originated in a rough crystal of 100 carats or more, is unique among world-famous gems for not only its color, but also its elongated shape.
