For sale is a "ball" black tourmaline, from Trial Harbour, Tas. These are a form of tourmaline I have seen only from this location, and then rarely.

Actually its only the second one I have seen for sale on the net, and I sold the other one. The piece is quiet flashy, and has some associated quartz. Rare.
