ID: CC19610
To describe this ex-matrix crystal of Elbaite Tourmaline as succulent would not be far from the mark as it resembles a stick of crisp acidic leafy green rhubarb with a bright coral-pink termination.  From the Rangkul' pegmatite field in Tajikistan, the crystal is triangular in cross section with deep, vertically striated prism faces and alternating horizontal bands of acidic lime and deep leaf green.  The final 2 to 4 mm of the termination is almost purely transparent and seemly colourless when view from above, but from side-on it is a stunning pink.  A delightful Elbaite from Rangkul'.
