Gemmy and with a glassy luster, this single crystal has a dramatic color change and shows striking dichroic shift. The color change ranges from a purple-red to a yellow green. Aside from that, this is in fine condition, well terminated and a very different style of tourmaline from what is usually seen. Far better in person the color shift is one of the strongest I have seen.
