Tourmaline var. Elbaite
A outstanding tourmaline crystal from the famous Lemon Tree Pocket, at Colonel Murta, in Minas Gerais, Brazil! This fine, single crystal is quite large for the find, weighing in at 19.5 grams. The color zoning is superb and the crystal has a wet luster. The modified, pyramidal termination is quite interesting and the crystal is also pretty gemmy. There is a sizable contact on the backside but it doesn’t detract from the display angle, and the crystal has no real damage. Comes with a custom acrylic base.
