Elbaite Tourmaline
near Coronel Murta, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Miniature, 3.8 x 1.7 x 1.4 cm
This gem tourmaline is highlighted by the intense magenta termination that will make this pocket memorable! The middle is a truly gemmy green zone, with cuttable tourmaline. The bottom pink zone contains a very gemmy nodule of cutting rough, as well. Note that there is very minor restoration on the termination faces, where it had slight damage coming out of the January 2020 pocket (and hence price is reduced accordingly). 19 grams.
