Thumbnail, 2.8 x 1.9 x 1.8 cm
2.8 x 1.9 x 1.8 cm Very nice example of the famous and recent mushroom-habit Tourmalines out of Mogok. This lovely toenail has excellent luster and form, and the deep cherry-red color is about as perfect as you could ask for. The quartz partially encases the 1.7 cm across Tourmaline, creating a nice aesthetic piece.
