T is for Tourmaline

During my husband’s stay in Afghanistan he was on a hunt to find a natural stone for me, that was native to that region. After doing some research he discovered that Tourmaline was the safest bet.

He searched for just the right stone and surprised me with it on his first visit home last June.

It is beautiful! It is a deep, dark green pear shaped stone.

Since I don’t know how to set a stone like this, I found a local artist to design a setting.

This is the finished product. I love it and wear it every day.

In a way I feel a physical connection to the stone…I have from the first time I touched it.

Maybe it was mine in another life? You never know...
