This is a marvellous crystal in phantastic quality from recent finds from this old relatively small mine. Usually the locality is prominent for light blue Topaz. Tourmaline crystals from the locality are usually just green. This new material shows a wonderful combination of blue and green colors. The crystal shows excellent luster, sharp termination and wonderful stratition all around and also very interesting modified pyramidal endpoints. It is water-clear; there is no internal break at all not even minor inclusions; perfect cut quality from bottom to top! It does not need any backlight to show the internal colors, photos were done under daylight.
