Tourmaline

I had never heard of this stuff until I went gem hunting. Almost all that we found was black, but my wife found a translucent piece that was the darkest green I ever saw. It was so pretty that she chose it over one of the sapphires to make a pendant.
Location Mitchell County, North Carolina, USA
Mineral Type Tourmaline

This is the piece that will be a pendant.
