Here is a beautiful example of the rare variety of tourmaline called liddicoatite. It has been thinly sliced, and polished on both sides to reveal the internal 3-point star and dark red triangle that is characteristic of Russian liddicoatite. The star and triangle are especially striking when the slice is backlit, practically glowing in different shades of raspberry red and magenta. This is a very aesthetic specimen of this unusual variety of tourmaline.
