From an old collection, this is from the classic 1980’s supply of this material. These parti-color Tourmaline are hugely important as their unique colors (and equally catchy moniker) brought colored stone appreciation to an entirely new group of consumers. These are largely gone now, particularly the well saturated Brazilian stones that are so recognizable. Great stone - a classic ‘matchstick’ cut.
