Schorl Tourmaline

Specimen # 201210
Mineral: Schorl Tourmaline
Location: Maryland Materials Quarry (North East Quarry), Cecil Co., Maryland, USA
Size: 7.7 x 6.3 x 3.3 cm


This is a remarkable specimen – a 6.3 cm crystal of schorl tourmaline in matrix from Maryland (!). The specimen has two repairs – one about one quarter of the way up from the base of the crystal and the other repairing it to the matrix. This is one of those one-of-a-kind specimens that is so important to preserve. In very good condition overall, some chipping. An impressive tourmaline from the from the Maryland suite of the John S. White Collection.
