The Pederneira mine in Minas Gerais, Brazil is synonymous with some of the world's finest quality elbaite tourmaline crystals. Tourmaline from the Pederneira mine shows a fascinating color range, from mint-green to deep blue to hot pink and red. This fine single crystal on white cleavelandite matrix has a completely gem-quality body, with amazing color zoning going from pink to blue to mint-green. The pyramidal termination is typical of many Pederneira tourmalines, and the luster, condition and presentation of this gem crystal is excellent. An exceptional matrix tourmaline from the Pederneira mine, from the collection of Gerhard Wagner of Germany. Mr. Wagner assembled what was probably the world's finest collection of crystallized tourmaline-group minerals, and this is a superb specimen from his noted collection. Tom Spann photo.
