These classic, so-called pencil tourmalines were found in the late 1980s and have long been considered a special style for the Himalaya. This particular piece was long kept in the display San Diego collection maintained by Bill Larson at his shop, The Collector, in Fallbrook, California. It is 8 grams, and doubly-terminated, also absolutely pristine. Valued $1500-1800
