A beautiful, bi-colored, GEM tourmaline from recent finds at the famous Pederniera Mine of Brazil. The lower half of this lustrous beauty is a very pleasing teal-blue, which grades upward to emerald-green. The steep, black pyramidal termination with intriguing etch faces tops off this excellent crystal. The very clean repair, mid-way up, where the color change occurs, is barely noticeable and is certainly not a detraction. A classic Pederneira bi-color tourmaline.
