Beautiful all natural untreated purple blue paraiba tourmaline crystal with pristine termination. The stone is well shaped for great yield. Some light cloud/veil inclusions inside which are typical and accepted in this variety. The value of paraibas is out the roof. This is a rare treat and a valuable investment from the famous Sao Jose De Batalha mine. GIA Magazine "Gems & Gemology" noted this new deposit and the accepted heat treatment to bring out the neon colors so prized in paraiba tourmalines.
