Mineral: Elbaite Tourmaline

Size: 3.3 x 2.2 x 1.1 cm


Detailed Description

This is a sharp tourmaline crystal with fine striations and great crystal forms at the termination. The deep green crystal shows its colour well with back-lighting or side-lighting, as it is not a thick crystal, compared to its width. This crystal is in good condition, with some chipping, one at the tip and a chipped area near the bottom (this is what allows it to be such a great price). It’s hard to find a such a nice green tourmaline for this price! A very pretty tourmaline crystal from the Steve Szilard collection.
