ID: CC17547
A pleasing, off-matrix, single crystal of Elbaite Tourmaline with a good termination from Barra do Salinas in the Jequitinhonha Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil. The specimen is essentially a pink and green watermelon Tourmaline, having an outer shell of limey-emerald-green and a pale candy-pink core.  The latter forms the lower half of the crystal where the outer green shell has been naturally etched away.  A lovely small Elbaite with an asymmetric hexagonal termination and bright glassy lustre.
