Rare pink stone for $ 1.2 million

Long ago, below the surface of what we now call Brazil, lay a thin layer of pink tourmaline, a semiprecious stone, to create a natural miracle. Found in the Pederneira mine in 2011, the stone was special to deserve the name: “Great Divide”. Now it is offered to a happy buyer at a price of $ 1.2 million.

The opening of the “Great Gap” was the first success, the second – to withdraw it from the mine. Unlike other specimens, the Great Divide only needed to eliminate scratches on the right side. Sam sample is surprisingly large – 15 cm x 18 cm x 18 cm, includes albite (opaque white material) and lepidolite (lilac-gray material, rich in lithium). This stone is the only one of its kind.
