Item Description

A classic example of the famous Tourmalines from the Stewart Lithia Mine in Pala, California. The crystal shows a lovely rich cranberry hue at the termination, which grades into a rich reddish-pink shade throughout the rest of the prism. Minor imperfections can be seen, but the color and vivid gemminess make it a very alluring example of these now hard to find Tourmaline crystals. From the collection of Shields Flynn.
