This is a classic Himalaya Mine tourmaline crystal, mostly translucent, and with pink to light cranberry color. Viewing along the c-axis from the bottom reveals a thin green rind, so this is a watermelon tourmaline. The crystal is terminated, but incomplete on the back of the termination. Sits as shown for display without needing a stand. A very good example for the price.
