A beautiful parallel pair of elbaite crystals with crystals of albite. This piece is aesthetic all the way around – hard to pick a favourite veiwing angle. The tourmaline crystals are dark olive green, opaque for much of their length, and a strong backlight reveals translucent olive nearer the termination, with a lighter blue zone right near the tip. The elbaite prism faces are lustrous with prominent striations, and the terminations are matte. In excellent condition, no damage. Stands perfectly for display as photographed. A very classy piece.
