Tourmaline, California, USA
description: 4" tall This fine bi-colored (pink and green), lustrous, double terminated crystal is from one of America's classic mineral localities. The Himalaya Mine near Mesa Grande, San Diego County in California was mined for tourmaline for longer than any other American locality. I find this piece esthetically pleasing since the colors are as or near as strong as could be expected for this locality. The definition between the pink and green phase boundaries is also sharp. This is desirable. The luster of the crystal is higher than average. It is bigger and better than most elbaite singles from the Himalaya Mine that one can find around the United States.
