A charming and beautiful set of ten terminated Elbaite Tourmaline crystals from the Himalaya mine in San Diego County, California.  The crystals are contained in a Riker Specimen Mount measuring 21.9 x 16.7 x 2.2 cm; a black specimen display box with front glass panel.  The Elbaites are held against the glass panel by a pad of white cotton-wool type material, as supplied inside the mount.  The reverse of the box has a printed blank label on which the specimen details can be written and comes with its original outer brown card protective box.  The Elbaite crystals measure 2.7, 2.8, 3.2, 3.5, 4.4, 4.5, 5.0, 5.6, 5.7 and 6.0 cm in length and vary between 5 to 7 mm in cross section.  The accompanying photos show the variety in colour sequences through each crystal, with no two alike.  The three primary colours of raspberry-pink, lime-green and colourless, come in many shades and vary from translucent to partly gemmy.  A delightful old display set of ten Himalaya mine Elbaites.
