A doubly-terminated (roughly on the bottom, but natural) crystal of pretty pink Himalaya tourmaline, out of the Jaime Bird collection. The crystal ran into matrix obstructions on both ends, resulting in strangely-shaped and interesting terminations. You can still see the bits of mineral that obstructed growth, forcing the crystal to grow around them. Fine transparency for the Himalaya. Weighs 27 grams.
