TOURM47 - Tourmaline Var. Tri-color Elbaite "scepter"
$ 3500.00
SOLD NET
Pederneira Mine, Sao Jose da Safira, Minas Gerais, Brazil
small cabinet - 6.4 x 1 x 1

This gorgeous Tourmaline is so ideal, it's what everyone looks for in a tourmaline crystal. It's 99% facetable, so the crystal glows a beautiful shade of green and blue. It has a long slender length wtih a bright pink stem. This was part of Luis Menezes collection for years, he got it from Jon Das Mosas. The termination is trigonal and complex at the very tip, the body is pristine, even the stem is terminated. There is one face where the green part wraps around the pink stem where there is rough underside edge, instead of a re-healed edge. It's technically a tri-color double terminated scepter. It weighs 11.83 grams.
