A beautiful green elbaite crystal from the Bennett Quarry. It is sharp with lustrous, striated prism faces and a simple termination. The colour is internally zoned, from a cooler hue of slightly aqua-green near the termination, transitioning to a warmer green lower down. There is minor quartz on part of the termination. In excellent condition (a tiny chip on the back of the termination is visible with magnification).
From the Pete Richards collection, acquired July, 1995. A very nice Maine green tourmaline!
