Parallel crystals of reasonably gemmy lime-green Tourmaline grow vertically to form a gradually inwardly-stepped tower with a candy-pink base and pyramidal termination, itself with a small triangular flat pinacoid.  Backlit, the crystal glows a tangy citrus-lime perched on its pink basal prism section.  A delicious miniature Tourmaline form one of California‚Äôs most famous gem localities, the Himalaya mine in Mesa Grande, San Diego County.  The crystal is mounted on a small clear acrylic base.
