This is a HUGE, remarkably complete, sceptered crystal of the tourmaline varietal Dravite, from its classic locality. It is over 2 kilos, at 2100 grams mass. Crystals from this mine have graced collections for a long time as examples of stereotypical crystal habit, and of big tourmaline. But this monster is in a class of its own, with exceptional form and luster. These do not sell for a fortune, I admit, but this one I think is worth a lot more...very impressive, in person!
