Item Description

Here we have a beautiful crystal of bicolor Tourmaline with lustrous, striated prism faces and great gemminess. A vibrant pinkish colored interior is surrounded by a VERY gemmy blue-green zone on the exterior. The piece is in good shape, with only a few tiny nicks and a partially incomplete growth on the back. It would make a nice addition to any Tourmaline suite, a gem crystal collection, or a Brazilian collection. Classic material and great quality from the standpiont of color, luster and gemminess. From the worldwide thumbnail / miniature collection of Irv Brown.
