Elegant, gemmy to translucent crystal of Elbaite Tourmaline from Paprok. It has everything you want in a Tourmaline from here. It is a rich pink grading to a light grass green at the gemmy termination. The multi-peaked termination is architectural, and the luster is excellent top to bottom.
Save for the base, of course, the crystal is complete and uncontacted all the way around, and can be displayed from any angle. Good size, too – not a wimpy crystal at all, and will hold its own in most collections.
The crystal is totally floater perfect all around with a perfect secondary crystal grown right from top of the main crystal with it’s termination facing downward!
It has an excellent aesthetics, great colour & quality with the perfection at its best. No repair no damage absolutely perfect all around.
