Miniature, 4.9 x 4.7 cm
Ex. Chris Korpi
A big fat blue tourmie from the Stewart is considered quite a rarity! This one, though dark, shows good color when backlit and has a lighter, extremely glassy blue termination as well. It is complete all around, though somewhat contacted in the back where it grew against something else and has not the perfect symmetry on those back faces as a result. Still, it has been priced accordingly and remains a fairly significant Stewart Mine tourmaline specimens. Comes with Sunnywood Base (not shown because I lost it for a little while, there...)
