A splendid 3.2 cm tall Chrome Dravite Tourmaline crystal from Nadonjukin in the Manyara Region of Tanzania.  This ex-matrix translucent crystal looks spectacular when back-lit, emitting a luxurious deep lime-emerald green glow, influenced by its chrome content.  The prism is vertically striated and has a shallow pyramidal trigonal termination whose faces display complex growth patterns and with an overall bright glassy lustre.  A lovely small miniature Tourmaline.
