A GORGEOUS, gemmy, lustrous and pristine, watermelon tourmaline nicely complimented by lustrous, bladed cleavelandite from the famous Pederneira Mine. The lower core is dark cranberry-red, with the rest of the crystal a beautiful, gemmy green. Scattered purple lepidolites add pazzazz. The backlit photos highlight the gemminess and intense green color. Ex Marty Lewadny Collection. 5.0 x 3.9 x 2.5 cm
