Item Description

This classic and striking bi-colored Cruzeiro tourmaline from the 1960s or 70s is exemplified by the multiple, parallel-growth terminations, vivid bottle-green to light green shading variations of the transparent to translucent, tapered crystal cluster, striations and extreme glassiness of the specimen. Every rotation presents an entirely different perspective of this beauty. The major terminations up top are all pristine. Complete all-around, with only one broken tip on a lower sidecar crystal and very trivial periphery wear at the base. An exquisite Cruzeiro tourmaline with great form, fine color and luster. 31 grams. Valued at $1750. From an old collection
