What a phenomenal specimen! This massive indicolite tourmaline is one crystal towering almost 6 inches tall and weighing in at 2 pounds. I purchased this piece from an old collection and information provided indicates it is out of Brazil. I believe this piece to be whole and intact, though there is one crack at the top of one of the small apexes where it may have been repaired. If it was, they did a great job. This piece is so massive, I'm having a hard time capturing the blue translucency that shows through on edges and along the top. It does pain me to say it, as I am a photographer, but the photos do not do the piece justice. Please view the video in the link below.

This significant specimen measures approximately 146 mm x 57 mm x 55 mm (5.7 in x 2.2 in x 2.1 in) and weighs 940 grams (2 lbs 1.0 oz). The weight includes the base, which the piece is hot glued to.
This specimen will be shipped USPS registered priority mail (domestic). International buyers, please contact me before purchasing, this piece will have specific shipping requirements which will increase typical shipping costs.
