Dravite Tourmaline

Specimen # 101344
Mineral: Dravite Tourmaline
Location: Dravite Tourmaline, Tanga Region, Tanzania
Size: 7.5 x 0.9 x 0.8 cm


This is a sharp, lustrous black dravite crystal has super lustre. I say black but it is the darkest brown – it looks black, it is opaque and even wth magnification seems black but one can find brown internal glinting. It is singly-terminated, and under magnification one can see tiny steps on the termination faces. In excellent condition – micro-chipping in a couple of places along edges. A very crisp dravite from a new location in Tanzania.
