Elbaite Tourmaline, Lepidolite

Elbaite Tourmaline, Lepidolite

Specimen # 100531
Mineral: Elbaite Tourmaline, Lepidolite
Location: Urubu Mine, Itinga, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Size: 4.6 x 3.4 x 2.1 cm
Price: $200.00 CAD

Quantity:

A beautiful singly-terminated elbaite crystal, this one has a rich deeper green zone at the termination, and the rest is a very pretty mid-green.  Nice contrast with the lepidolite, which is a very pale colour, hints of the typical lilac. In excellent condition, no damage. No edge chipping visible at all without magnification, except one back in against the lepidolite - really sweet!  (Most Urubu elbaites are not in this super condition.) There is a bit of lepidolite or albite on the termination - it's not damage. An excellent, aesthetic green tourmaline!
