Comment: Believed to be, and paid for, paraiba-type Tourmaline from Mozambique, which turned out to be greatly colored Apatite from not-sure-where.  Cut below our usual standards with a window and a chip on the back but the color was literally, blinding. Snatch yourself this color marvel at Apatite cost, including the usual Wild Fish perks.
Remark: Even pros make mistakes sometimes, when they buy without lab reports, hence as a 'normal' retail buyer never-ever trust without certificate (or to be politically correct: lab-report).  As a rule, in a big untested parcel of say, 'guaranteed unheated sapphires' offered by a reputable and honest dealer, one third to one half regularly do NOT survive the final lab-test but get ditched as 'heated', 'synthetic', 'spinel' etc. This is not malice or cheating but simply the result of decades, or centuries, of chaos in the trade without consistent scientific testing and quality control, a.k.a. consumer protection.
