Furthermore you will find that these lovelies have one other unique feature. They are briolette tourmaline’s. What does that mean? Simply stated, when cut, the gem-cutter forms the gemstone into an elongated pear shape with triangular facets. Therefore, the more cuts, the more light that is allowed into the stone, thus leaving the wearer with a full view of the stone.
