This miniature pink tourmaline has a lustrous termination and overall is highly translucent (more so than the photos show). Not cutting rough (but if it was price would be significantly higher) but a very good example for the price. Capped with a little bit of feldspar. The back is contacted (apparently removed from a cleavelandite matrix) and some chipped spots present, but displays nicely as shown without needing a stand.
