A really cool and “different” Tourmaline example from this recent mining at this famous Russian Tourmaline locality. The piece is an undamaged, good quality, sharp, lustrous to semi-lustrous, gemmy to translucent doubly-terminated specimen with unique coloration. The center of the crystal has a really unusual / rarely seen golden amber hue, which one rarely associates with Tourmaline. The outer edges and both terminations have a soft purplish-pink hue. The steep pyramidal termination has a small “gap” where a second generation of crystallization took place to create a thin crystallized “seam”. The basal termination has a very slight “cat’s eye” effect when rotated in the light. You don’t see many Tourmalines from this area that are doubly-terminated, and the bizarre color combination and far off locality makes it all the more interesting.
