Ah, the zoning of gem Tourmaline!  Sometimes this gives us bi-color gems and other times it can produce these fascinating crystal slices that are downright remarkable.  This lovely Malagasy slice shows a deep cranberry triangle surrounded by lighter pinks and oranges, all encased in a green 'rind'.  The colors are quite visible in standard lighting, but really pop with a little backlighting.  A wonderful gemological curiosity and a very manageable size to fit right in with the collection.
