Tourmaline, Cookeite
Himalaya Mine (Himalaya pegmatite; Himalaya dikes), Gem Hill, Mesa Grande District, San Diego Co., California, USA
Miniature, 3.4 x 2.7 x 2.3 cm
A highly unusual, beautiful, etched and lustrous bi-colored tourmaline with cookeite from the "Cityscape" pocket at the Himalaya Mine from the early 1980s. Not too many of these came out in this quality. Very unusual tourmaline, aside from the value of the locality. 3.4 x 2.7 x 2.3 cm
