I spotted this oddity in a series of auctions for purple tourmaline on Ebay. All of them were that indigo-violet tone that I've come to associate with unheated Mozambique material that Bruce has discussed on his blog.
While those are rare enough, I did a double-take when I saw this colour changing crystal.
The tone and shift is an exact match for the emerald cut Laurellite shown on this blog post!

The listing is here if you want more images
