Tourmaline Quartz, also known as Tourmalinated Quartz, is a variety of Clear Quartz with naturally occurring needle-like inclusions of Black Tourmaline, also known as Schorl. If you're not familiar with it, metaphysically it is highly valued. This particular cabochon has great clarity, and it always seems to be cause for conversation, as many still have not seen this crystal. The tourmaline inclusions are sparse but very well defined. The solid copper wire weave is simple to allow good visualization of the stone while holding it securely. The pendant measures approximately 1 3/4 inches long and 3/4 inches wide. This piece would be great for the young crystal collector just getting started. Pendant will arrive on a standard 18 inch waxed linen cord, but upgrades are available should you desire!
