Watermelon Tourmaline Pendant
You couldn't find a more classic watermelon tourmaline wedge! This 23.3 carats slice showcases the lovely green rind and two different colors of pink interior. The slice itself is just under an inch in length, but with the bail the length is closer to 1.25". At the slice's widest point it is about 3/4".
Wrapped in 14KT yellow gold, this slice is from the The Big Find (1972-1974) at the Dunton Mine in Newry, Maine. The Plumbago Mining Corporation mined the quarry for those two years (and kept mining for several years after that with very little luck).
