Tourmaline (Var: Watermelon Tourmaline) : A(D3)G6(T6O18)(BO3)3X3Z


Mass of watermelon tourmaline 9 cm wide, with cleavelandite, smoky quartz and lepidolite. Originally believed to be from the Walden Gem Quarry (and posted to that mindat page) because I bought it from Mr. Walden at his shop May 1, 1988. But having seen enough pieces from both places now this one is clearly from White Rocks.
