A beautiful off-matrix Tourmaline crystal of Chrome Dravite from Nadonjukin in the Manyara Region of Tanzania. The crystal is over 7 cm tall and divides into three colour zones; starting at the base, deep rhubarb-green, with a central golden-yellow section and terminating in an acidic leafy-lime-green.  The crystal is wonderfully translucent with internal colours appearing as if on crumpled metallic foil disseminated throughout the Tourmaline.  The three curved prism faces are vertically striated and culminate in a shallow pyramidal termination.  A superb example of this rare and beautiful species of the Tourmaline Group.
