Small Cabinet, 8.2 x 2.7 x 2.1 cm
Ex. Matthew Webb
A very color-saturated intense green and pink tourmaline from finds of 2010. The luster on this is fabulous, and the termination is unusually fine and glassy, as well as sharp, pointed and equant in style. The major crystal is nicely accented by small, gemmy sidecar crystals. They are not very big, but their presence adds a lot of visual impact and sets off the big crystal in the center. The top termination is so sharp that it looks carved!
