A well terminated crystal of Tourmaline from the classic Californian location of the Himalaya Mine, USA. The Tourmaline crystal measures to 3.4cm tall with a pinacoid termination, and vertical striations on the prism faces. There is a partly formed crystal of Tourmaline on one side of the main crystal at a 45 deg angle. The colour is a pleasing light pink, with a core of pastel olive green in the lower quarter of the main crystal. A neat specimen of Tourmaline from this classic location.
