Tourmalines from the Rubaya region of DR Congo have quickly become some of the finest gem crystals to be brought to market in recent memory. This specimen features great bi-color saturation in combination with a very nice complex termination. You can see it has nice "gemmyness" when held to a light source and looks great on display.
