An absolutely gorgeous tourmaline, light aqua-blue topped with raspberry terminations. These crystals are sharp and lustrous. In excellent condition, a small chip on one termination face of the smaller crystal (can be displayed out of view, or if forward, is quite small without magnification). From the Pete Richards collection, a wonderful Pederneira tourmaline.
