Size: 6.4 x 6.3 x 2.5 cm
 

WOW! What a fantastic tourmaline crystal group on purple lepidolite! The specimen features a fantastic bicolour "watermelon" style. Both colours are bright, intense and very well balanced. Indeed, the colours and the amazing composition are just mind-blowing! One of the crystals is repaired once, and on one spot there has been a small restoration done. All of these little condition issues are very well acceptable once a specimen has this outstanding beauty and gorgeous visual impact!

A gorgeous crystal from the best rubellite pocket ever found.

The titanites have razor-sharp edges, there is one small chip on the tip of the main titanite crystal, but it goes fully to the back side and is not noticable from the front viewing angle.
