The Luc Yen region of Vietnam has recently produced, in addition to excellent spinel and ruby crystals from marble, some outstanding examples of the classic "mushroom" rubellite tourmaline, known for many years from neighboring Myanmar. This is an outstanding large example weighing over 555 grams, with superb color, luster, and highly aesthetic form. The Minh Tien mine produced very few tourmalines of this quality and size and this is a superb example from the noted tourmaline collection of Gerhard Wagner of Germany. Riley Owen photos.
