An aesthetic pair of elbaite crystals on albite, these crystals are translucent with nice colour. The dark zones of the crystals are green and the top are colourless, which is relatively unusual – any hint of pink in these is extremely subtle. As you can see in the photos, the colour zones are not gradational – there is an abrupt change from green to clear, where the tourmaline crystals rise over the albite. These elbaite crystals are sharp with good lustre. In excellent condition (I can find one tiny chip at one top edge of the large crystal – you have to be searching for it.) Stands perfectly for display as photographed. A sweet tourmaline.
