SN11 - Tourmaline - SOLD
Cruzeiro Mine, São José da Safira, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
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!

Size: 5.7 x 2.7 x 2.4 cm
 

WOW! What a killer tourmaline crystal from an old find in Madagascar! The crystal is in fact a composite cluster of several individuals in paralel growth. The termination faces are stepped and all well developed. It displays indeed very well from all sides. The colour is green on top, changes to a blue-green in the center and peach-pink towards the lower end (which is actually more intense in person). Only about a dozen of this style has been found, and this is truly a superb one!
