Himalaya Mine, Gem Hill, Mesa Grande District, California, USA
An excellent and beautiful tourmaline represents the most famous tourmaline locality in the United States, the Himalaya Mine. Vibrant hot pink rubellite tourmlines extend out from a smoky quartz crystal grouping. The largest quartz extends straight up and centeres the entire piece which forms radially around it. The tourmalines have nice terminations, are highly lustrous with good clarity, and are glassy and clear. The quartz crystals are well formed and double terminated with only tiny scuffs to the edges of the quartz. This is a destinctive specimen from a highly desirable locality and a really fine beauty
