This is one of the most memorable specimens, to my eye, from the now famous Candy Cane pocket of late 2019, which was premiered and sold at Tucson 2020. It is one of only a few unrepaired specimens of any significance, and features a really dramatic, unlikely crystal perched on the edge of what looks like carved porcelain but is actually a sharp crystal of feldspar, and interestingly, it's also fluorescent, which isn't a common feature of most tourmalines. That exposed 3.5-cm-long crystal has no repairs! This miniature is absolutely unique not just for the find, or the country, but for anywhere.
