I am definitely hyperventilating just looking at the picture. This fabulous tourmaline giveaway is from Szarka (Dianne) Carter of Magpie Gemstones. Tourmaline is a much sought after gemstone because it comes in a wonderful array of colors. The most prized colors are green and deep pink - watermelon tourmaline (see my past post below).
I've never been able to afford more than tourmaline chips. But one lucky winner is going to receive these Grade A tourmaline tear drops - 42 of them all! These are drilled end to end and are 9mm long by 7.5mm wide. A conservative market price for them is $100. The gorgeous pink Grade AA tourmaline cabochon measures 20 by 15mm and 9mm thick and is valued at a minimum of $45. The combined value of this giveaway is at least $145!
