Item Description

A totally limpid, completely gemmy, clean tourmaline of intense evergreen saturated color. This piece, 16 grams, is literally cutting quality. It glows in a case with the slightest backlighting, so gemmy you see right through it to the faces in back. Valued $2000, easily. This comes from recent mining at this old locality.
