Tourmaline, Tourmaline var. Elbaite
Malkhan pegmatite field, Krasnyi Chikoy, Chitinskaya Oblast', Transbaikalia, Eastern-Siberian Region, Russia
76 x 30 x 30mm

 A
fairly large and well terminated polychrome tourmaline from the
Malchan pegmatite field in Eastern Siberia. This
crystal grades from an orangish red, to yellowish green, to a darker
brown green near the base.  There is no damage; all the edges are
sharp and the faces intact. Typically
I have shied away from these as the prices asked by the Russian
dealers usually start right about (or above) where I have priced this
one. The
Malchan deposit is actually a fairly recent discovery, having been
discovered southeast of Lake Baikal (near the Mongolian border) in
1980.  The locality has been producing in small amounts since,
though on a scale far smaller than either the Brazilian or Afghan
tourmaline deposits.  I will also add that the "warmer"
colored tourmalines (reds, yellows, oranges) are known from fewer
deposits than the greens and blues (which account for the bulk of the
Afghan/Brazilian production.) To my knowlege the main producers of
these colors are currently Malchan (where this one is from), and the
various pegmatites in Madagascar and Nigeria. This
piece really lights up when backlit correctly.
