ID: CC18991
A beautiful miniature double terminated Elbaite Tourmaline from the Himalaya mine in San Diego County, California, USA which displays splendid colour zoning.  The prism is triangular in cross section and measures 4.1 cm long.  The prism begins as deep bottle green quickly grading to translucent sage and sea-green and then watery pink.  A 1.8 cm zone of pale sage green then follows, pervaded with horizontally orientated black or dark green wispy inclusions, a most unusual feature in Tourmalines I have seen.  The prism terminates with a 7 mm deep pale fuchsia pink cap.  A delightful Tourmaline from this most historic California mine.
