Item Description

A classic, bi-colored, "Himalaya pink", tourmaline from the famed Himalaya Mine. The body of this gemmy and lustrous, well-striated, beauty is variable shades of the gorgeous pink, for which the locale is renowned. The 2 mm termination zone is a pleasing green and the pinacoidal termination is scalloped. The base is also a very light green. The bit of termination edgewear is noted, but is a very modest detraction. Highly representative older material from the Robert Whitmore Collection # 4466. 17 grams.
