Description

Here is a lovely polished slice of tourmaline from Malkan. The gem crystal was sliced then polished to show off the bright outer rind and the intense pink shades to the interior. The slice reveals one unique three-pointed star that is highly reminiscent of the Mercedes Benz logo, formed by dark wine red colors which occur naturally in the tourmaline. 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!
