Montréal, Québec, Canada, 2009/11/08 - The Billionaire Business Enterprises’ world largest cut Paraiba tourmaline - the "Ethereal Carolina Divine Paraiba" - has been certified by Guinness World Records™ as the Largest Cut Paraiba Tourmaline.
The world's rarest precious stone is of universal appeal, enjoying favorable connotations across many different cultures.
UNIQUENESS – Paraiba tourmalines are rare, small and very precious: There is only one Paraiba tourmaline mined for every 10,000 diamonds. While fine diamonds over ten carats have been found, the most extraordinary of which is the 45.22 carat blue Hope Diamond, quality Paraiba tourmalines of even three carats are almost unknown.
Or so it was, the world believed, until Canada financier Vincent Boucher, B. Sc. Physics, M. A. Government Policy Analysis; M. Sc. Aerospace Engineering [Space Technology] and President of Billionaire Business Enterprises Inc., from extensive anthropological, astronomical and scientific research revealed, on October 14, 2009, the most beautiful, fabulous and massive single piece of cut natural Paraiba tourmaline in our world.
ORIGIN – The new Guinness World Records™ Largest Cut Paraiba Tourmaline is a derivative of tourmaline with traces of copper and manganese which gives it the incandescent neon-like color. Bringing to life its full potential required unparalleled expertise and multi-faceted full spectrum mastery of an extremely skilled master craftsman.
VALUE – The value of the subject is estimated on the rarity/investment factor and the unlikely possibility of having to replace it for insurance purposes. Paraiba tourmaline is world’s rarest and precious gemstone. One carat of a vivid incandescent natural neon-like bluish-green Paraiba tourmaline runs as high as 5-figure US dollar. When estimating a value for a world record breaker of 191.87 carats we would have to consider an exponential increase in value of at least 10 x value per carat. The price of Paraiba tourmaline is escalating today as it increasingly becomes the most sought after gemstone on Earth. This places the Billionaire Business Enterprises’ world largest cut Paraiba in the rarest of the rare and without a doubt costliest of gems.
OWNERSHIP – The « Ethereal Carolina Divine Paraiba » is part of the Planetary Collection. Billionaire Business Enterprises Inc. (billionaire.tv) is the owner of the Planetary Collection. President of Billionaire Business Enterprises, the Canada financier Vincent Boucher (vincentboucher.com) strongly challenges traditional, limiting beliefs regarding the possibilities of our future as a species to achieve and enrich possibilities opening up to Humanity.
