Item Description

The famous quote from John Sinkankas was "gems are minerals after all". In our continued efforts to promote the importance of gemstones for ALL collectors, we want to give mineral collectors a chance at a rare cut stone that complements a choice mineral specimen from a classic locality. Some of the finest mineral collections in the world are accompanied by gemstones that either complete a "rough and cut" set for certain specimens, or simply show the beauty of particular species when they are faceted. We are offering this stone as an opportunity for collectors to expand their horizons and purchase gemstones that would supplement crystallized specimens in their collections. I think it is important for collectors to know that faceted stones can expand one's interests in minerals and can add a certain reverence to the hobby of collecting minerals. Tourmalines are beloved by dealers and collectors for their intense colors in various shades. Pink Tourmaline is one of the most popular colors for the material in the world. This stone is a "Pear" cut gem with a vibrant pink color. The stone is virtually eye clean, and is a good size gem and would make for a very eye-catching piece of jewelry. Great quality, cutting and color! Enjoy!
