Very Fine Indicolite Tourmaline
Pederneira Mine, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Worthy of inclusion in any important private collection or museum, this is a visually arresting specimen due to its unusual crystal formation consisting of a larger primary crystal and a protruding pencil. The large crystal has a lustrous cap of deep blue shading to lighter blue-green at the base, while the pencil has a distinct blue-green hue. The luster of this specimen is superb and the color is equally exceptional, especially for the size.
