Elbaite -rare fibrous-zoned Achroite, Verdelite and Indicolite crystal (Ref: A7-150-(504))

Aracuai, Jequitinhonha Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
39mm x 19mm x 19mm
minID: 5Q1-AV8
$380
An very unusual older specimen from a find in the 1970's at Aracuai. The tourmaline crystal is both etched and prismatic with a large fibrous zone in the middle. The color zoning is unusual and includes the uncommon colorless (Achroite) variety. Ex Larry White collection, this is an attractive oddity and very different from other finds of fibrous Tourmalines. In good but not perfect condition, there is contacting and chips but not badly noticeable from some angles.
