Description

A beautiful tourmaline from the Pederneira Mine, with a sharp and particularly lustrous termination. Lovely colour in this crystal – the cap is a rich mid-green, and the core is a deep pink. In cross-section, the crystal is a classic “watermelon tourmaline.” In excellent condition, no damage.¬†From the Pete Richards collection, this is a sweet little tourmaline.
