I spotted this oddity in a series of auctions for purple tourmaline on Ebay. All of them were that indigo-violet tone that I've come to associate with unheated Mozambique material that Bruce has discussed on his blog.
While those are rare enough, I did a double-take when I saw this colour changing crystal.
The tone and shift is an exact match for the emerald cut Laurellite shown on this blog post!

The listing is here if you want more images

Hi Barbra:

All out of RI fluid. Expensive. My Great Dane knocked it over with his tail a few weeks back, while it was open. Luckly I was there. I'll give you a link to the video of the Green Zircon.

I probably could go over to my good friend who is a jeweler/GIA Gemologist for over 30 years, & have him take a reading if you like?

It it a top specimen. No haze, lots of dispersion & life. Probably the best one I've had. I've had many. If you are further interested, please message me. :)
