Elbaite Tourmaline

Specimen # 200504
Mineral: Elbaite Tourmaline
Location: Minas Gerais, Brazil
Size: 3.1 x 1.7 x 1.3 cm


A sharp, lustrous elbaite crystal. The crystal is black to the eye, but strong backlighting reveals a blue-green and a smoky brown internal colour zone. In excellent condition, with minor chips. From the Pete Richards collection, a nice tourmaline crystal that stands perfectly for display. The termination is super!
