Elbaite (Tourmaline) with Quartz

ID: CC20743
This delightful thumbnail Elbaite Tourmaline with Quartz is from Barra de Salinas in Minas Gerais, Brazil and makes a charming display piece.  A 3.2 cm tall Elbaite crystal stands vertically attached to a terminated, milky Quartz crystal and a few tiny blades of buttermilk-cream Cleavelandite, a platy variety of Albite Feldspar.  The Elbaite begins dark bottle-green, changing to gemmy, limey-apple-green and culminating in thin zones of peach, lime, peach, lime and finally a termination of honey-lemon!  A fabulous Elbaite displaying a splendid combination of sequenced colours from Barra de Salinas.
