Description

A bright and terminated pinkish-red tourmaline on matrix. This piece has great color-- you don't see such intensity from Pakistan and Afghanistan, and I would say it is most comparable to the best colored material from Nigeria or Brazil. The internal fractures make it a bit difficult to see the sharp crystal form, so I wanted to make sure the crystal faces were clearly visible.
