Goma, North Kivu, Democratic Republic of the Congo
Small Cabinet, 5.7 x 2.4 x 2.1 cm

This crystal is so sharp, it looks like a glass carving to emulate a wax carving or a real crystal. It has something special for it, in symmetry, and the combination of gemminess and color. It is really impactful in person, and a quality example of the finest color palette and termination combinations that will make Goma eternally remembered in the tourmaline world. Right where the pink and green zones meet, there is a faint orange zone. In front of a polarized light source, there's a substantial color change with the pink zone becoming a cranberry-red color and the green zone turning even darker. This specimen has a mass of 55.2 grams.
