  Largest Cut Paraiba Tourmaline- Ethereal Carolina sets world record

 MONTREAL, Canada -- Montreal financier Vincent Boucher is the owner of the the Ethereal Carolina Divine Paraiba, a Paraiba tourmaline with a mass of nearly 192 carats and valued at between $25 million and $125 million-which sets the new world record for the Largest Cut Paraiba Tourmaline.

   The Largest Cut Paraiba Tourmaline was already certified in June by the Gemological Institute of America, the foremost authority in gemology. (enlarge photo)
   Paraiba tourmaline is one of the rarest jewelry gems in the world; favored by the connoisseur collectors; and showcased by the elite jewelers worldwide.

   There is one Paraiba tourmaline (named for the Brazilian region where the vast majority are found, including Boucher's) mined for every 10,000 diamonds, and Boucher pointed out only a total of 50 kilograms of the gem have been recovered to date.

 The previous Guinness World Record holder for the Largest Cut Paraiba Tourmaline was Grand Tang’s 51.77 carat paraiba tourmaline.

   Although valued at between $25 million and $125 million, what the 36-year-old company CEO called a “perfect and flawless stone” isn’t for sale - yet.

   "It is so rare, it's only for collectors," noted Moneca Kaufmann, manager of the Kaufmann boutique.

    Vincent Boucher wants his Billionaire Business Inc. to become as known for coloured gemstones as De Beers Diamond Jewellers Ltd. is for clear precious stones.

    He has had the Ethereal Carolina for six months and declined to say how much he paid for it.

    On the Web:

    The Ethereal Carolina is part of the Planetary Collection held by Billionaire Business Enterprises Inc., the firm the former Canadian Space Agency employee founded in 2000 with his own money.
   Vincent Boucher's answer to WRA's question about this canceled interview: "The interview was cancelled because they couldn’t believe they had the real stone in their local TV studio!! It was indeed the real stone. "
