Burma is known for many gem species, but Tourmaline is not one of the most common of them, which makes this gemmy green crystal even more treasured. With a mass of 11.3g, the majority of the crystal is a pleasing green, with a slight zone of seafoam near the termination, capped with a thin pink. Several smaller crystals accent the base and the termination. A rarity for the country, purchased in Burma on one Bill Larson's trips and preserved in the collection for decades. If you did not know better, you would think it an unusual Brazilian crystal - but this is so much more rare!
