DXL7 Tourmaline var. Liddicoatite
Sahatany Pegmatite Field, Vakinankaratra Region, Antananarivo Prov., Madagascar
3.1x 1.3x 0.7 cm

A very bright, magenta colored tourmaline with a flat termination, from Madagascar.  The piece lacks clarity, but again, the color is exceptional-- brighter than anything from Afghanistan or Pakistan (even their irradiated pieces) and probably brighter than most things from Brazil or Nigeria.
