Pederneira Mine, São José da Safira, Minas Gerais, Brazil
A nearly perfectly gem tourmaline is doubly terminated and is from the famous Pederneira Mine in Brazil. This tourmaline easily transmits light so the rich color is evident even in casual lighting. It is a true green with slight gradients to blue green. The prism faces are highly lustrous with light striations while the top termination is pyramidal. The bottom is flattened and recrystallized. The crystal is undamaged and unrepaired.
