Item Description

A very cute cluster of three parallel-growth, gemmy and lustrous, watermelon tourmalines crystals from recent finds at the famous Pederneira Mine. The large, vibrant, cranberry-red/pink core is sheathed in and capped by beautiful, teal-blue tourmaline. The lightly etched, olive-green, pyramidal terminations are striking and the bit of accenting quartz is a nice touch. Complete all-around, the contacting on one side is out of sight. A beautiful and highly representative watermelon tourmaline from this noted locale.
