How are green tourmalines graded and valued?

When it comes to grading and valuing green tourmalines, colour, clarity, cut, carat weight, and origin are the key factors to consider. A rich, deep green colour is highly desirable, with the intensity and saturation of the green colour playing a role. Clarity is also important, with a clear stone that is free from inclusions or blemishes being more valuable. Cut is another factor, where a well-cut stone with good symmetry and proportion will have better light performance and brilliance. Carat weight, which refers to the size of the stone, also plays a role, with larger stones generally being more valuable.

Clean it using a mild soap and warm water, make sure to rinse it thoroughly, and dry it with a soft cloth. Avoid using ultrasonic cleaners or steamers, as these can damage the gemstone. Store it in a safe place, away from other gemstones or jewellery that may scratch or chip it. Avoid exposing it to extreme temperatures, direct sunlight, or high humidity. By following these steps, you can help keep your green tourmaline looking its best and ensure that it stays in good condition for years to come.
