This Elbaite Tourmaline can simply be summed-up as exceedingly pretty and captivating!  The thickly-set, vertically striated prism, is a delicious translucent bubble-gum pink which grades through astringent mottled yellow to an acidic-burnt lime green termination.  Triangular in cross section, the upper halves of two sides are richly encrusted with intergrown blades of white Albite feldspar, themselves populated by tiny pale lime-green Elbaite crystals.  Mounted vertically on a clear acrylic base and with a late Tony Milverton label, a much-respected mineral dealer from Cheshire, England.
