This is a very unusual combination for an inclusion gem.  Tourmaline is often found as well formed crystalline inclusions in Quartz and a handful of other species, but is not common in Beryl.  This is the first time that we have seen it in the Morganite variety of Beryl - there is actually one quite large terminated crystal along with several other much thinner examples throughout the stone.  Great combination and really quite fascinating.
