Description

Here is an unusual polished slice of tourmaline from Malkan. The gem crystal was sliced then polished to show off the intense pink and yellow outer rind and the intense brown interior. The colors are rich and sharply delineated, the slice is complete, undamaged and well-polished on both sides. This piece has an amazing size and is a true eye catcher!
