Description:A fantastic and dramatic looking pristine miniature pair of intergrown gemmy watermelon tourmaline crystals from the famed Pederneira Mine. Both crystals are doubly terminated, with the outer ends being broken and rehealed. The green rind of the lustrous, translucent, well-striated main crystals, similar to the pyramidal termination of the smaller crystal and the very nifty, jauntily angled 7 mm side car obscures the vibrant gemmy pink color of the crystal interior. The crystals GLOW, when back lit. Artistic and classic style tourmaline from this noted pegmatite. 84.08 carats or nearly 17 grams mass.
