ID: CC13199
A semi-transparent, light bubble gum pink Elbaite crystal (Tourmaline Group species) with a horizontal and undamaged pinacoid termination.  Adjacent to this is a sharp colour change to pale lime-green, forming a 1 mm thick layer.  In turn, this is capped by a very thin pink layer, about 0.25 mm thick which forms the actual termination face.  A small 9 x 2 mm Elbaite crystal branches out on one side and a little white Albite feldspar and mauve Lepidolite mica adhere to the crystal around its base.  This Tourmaline is from the famous Himalaya Mine at Mesa Grande in San Diego County, California, USA and is a fine example.
